The Levin Stage

February 27 – March 22, 2009

Lane, a successful doctor who likes everything in order hires a quirky maid who hates to clean but loves to tell jokes in Portuguese. When the maid befriends the doctor’s sister – who does love to clean – a strange yet perfect match is made. A comic look at the secrets we sweep under the rug, laughter we don’t understand, events we can’t control and how hard it is to keep houses (and lives) tidy.
