The Franklin College Theatre Department will perform Sara Ruhl’s The Clean House at 8 p.m. beginning Wednesday, March 8 through Saturday, March 11 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 12. All performances will be in Théâtre Margot in the Johnson Center for Fine Arts, located at the corner of Branigin Blvd. and Grizzly Dr.
This funny and poignant contemporary play about class, comedy and the true nature of love revolves around a married couple, Lane and Charles, who are doctors. They have hired a housekeeper from Brazil who wants to be a comedian and becomes friends with Lane’s eccentric sister. Things get further complicated when Charles falls for one of his patients. Audience discretion is advised.
Nicolas Crisafulli, professor of fine arts and theatre at Franklin College, will direct the play. He earned his bachelor’s degree in theatre arts and political science from Presbyterian College in South Carolina and his master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Memphis. Crisafulli joined the Franklin College faculty in 2009, after serving as a graduate instructor at the University of Memphis.
