Social class gets a comic twist in playwright Sarah Ruhl’s The Clean House. Depicting a housekeeper who wants to be a comedian, her indulgent, married employers, and the employer’s housework-loving sister who takes over, the play quickly ramps up when the husband announces a cancer patient he’s treated is actually his soulmate. It’s a clever set-up for Madison Theatre Guild, and one that becomes unexpectedly moving as the play goes on.
