Threshold Stage Company Presents: 

The Clean House

April 13-29 

Threshold Stage Company presents The Clean House by Sarah Ruhl.  Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 2004 and a Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2005, Sarah Ruhl's comedy The Clean House will have you laughing out loud at the unexpected turns that life can bring.  The New York Times describes "The Clean House" as "a play that keeps revealing surprising insights, whimsical images and layers of rich feeling as it goes along; one of the finest and funniest plays you're likely to see."  The Clean House is an uproarious contemporary comedic fairy tale that seamlessly weaves a tapestry of relationships, life, love, death and the presumption of control and orderliness in a world that can be messy and unpredictable.  The talented cast of local, regional, and national actors under the expert guidance of A. Nora Long, the Associate Artistic Director of the award-winning Lyric Stage Company of Boston, will magically transport you into the wonderfully surreal, operatic and comedic work of The Clean House.

Comedy at The STAR

CL Thomas: Cinco de Maine-o

Saturday, May 5 · 8pm

Comic/Actor Tom Clark is celebrating Cinco de Mayo in a DownEast fashion.

He'll be appearing at the Star Theater Kittery On May 5th With a new show called Cinco de Maine-o, starring his Maine comic character "CL Thomas. "This marks his 3rd return to The STAR Theatre but this show is new and improved! For those who haven't seen the Comic Character, Clark says, "C.L. is an old Mainer, the kind you might have seen sitting around the wood stove in the back of the general store in a Norman Rockwell painting. He’s not so much a story teller as he is a rambling old uncle with a comic viewpoint that audiences really seem to be responding to,” said Clark. “I like that I can use both my acting and stand up skills. C.L. is always interacting with the crowd and it being a family show I can go from joking with Grandma to teasing the teenager not to text during the show. He’s a gentle old soul, but he’s got that kind of New England honesty.
