“The Clean House” is a comedic drama which revolves around a Brazilian cleaner, Mathilde, played by Isabel Escudero Zorde, and two American sisters Lane (Jana Pulkrabek) and Virginia (Vanessa Poole).

Lane is a doctor whose marriage is breaking down and Virginia, who is a meticulous cleaner, feels inferior to her sister.

As the events go on the sisterly bond grows and their relationship changes.

Packed with emotions and humour, this play is about relationships, forgiveness and facing your inner demons.

You know you are in for a treat when Vanessa Poole and Jana Pulkrabek are performing together amongst other equally talented actors such as Isabel Escudero Zorde, Tina Robinson and Jens Blegaa.

Plus, it is always liberating to watch Vanessa Poole trash a room.

Tickets at DKK 175 and the performance is in English.

Running time: 2hrs 30mins including break.
