The Franklin College Theatre Department will present Sara Ruhl’s comedy, “The Clean House,” opening Wednesday at Théâtre Margot in the Johnson Center for Fine Arts, located at the corner of Branigin Blvd. and Grizzly Drive.

The show opens at 8 p.m. Wednesday and will be shown through March 11 and at 2 p.m. on March 12.

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.
