The play takes place in what the author describes as “metaphysical Connecticut,” mostly in the home of a married couple who are both doctors. They have hired a housekeeper named Matilde, an aspiring comedian from Brazil who’s more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than in house-cleaning. Lane, the lady of the house, has an eccentric sister named Virginia who’s just nuts about house-cleaning. She and Matilde become fast friends, and Virginia takes over the cleaning while Matilde works on her jokes. Trouble comes when Lane’s husband Charles reveals that he has found his soul mate, or “bashert” in a cancer patient named Anna, on whom he has operated.
ANA – Late 50s-70s, Argentinean (accent preferred. SPEAKS SPANISH, and some Portuguese). She is impossibly charismatic- a Sophia Loren. Loves life and radiates love. In the first Act she plays Matilde’s mother. Movement and Dance experience a plus.
