"Passionate. Show-stopping. Daringly over-the-top and impressively consistent in its delirious excess. The Clean House shines."--New Haven Advocate   "The Clean House is not, by any means, a traditional boy-meets-girl story. In fact disease, death, and dirt are among the subjects it addresses. This comedy is romantic, deeply so, but in the more arcane sense of the word: visionary, tinged with fantasy, extravagant in feeling, maybe a little nuts."--The New York Times   "Touching, inventive, invigoratingly compact, and luminously liquid, Eurydice reframes the ancient myth of ill-fated love to focus not on the bereaved musician but on his dead bride--and on her struggle with love beyond the grave."--San Francisco Chronicle   This volume is the first publication of Sarah Ruhl, "a playwright with a unique comic voice, perspective, and sense of theater" (Variety), who is fast leaving her mark on the American stage. In the award-winning The Clean House--a play of uncommon romance and uncommon comedy--a maid who hates cleaning dreams about creating the perfect joke, while a doctor who treats cancer leaves his heart inside one of his patients. This volume also includes Eurydice, Ruhl's reinvention of the tragic Greek tale of love and loss, Late: A Cowboy Song, and Melancholy Play.   Sarah Ruhl received the prestigious Susan Smith Blackburn Prize in 2004 for her play The Clean House, which has been produced at Yale Repertory Theatre in New Haven, Wilma Theatre in Philadelphia, South Coast Repertory Theatre in Costa Mesa, and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in Washington, DC. Her play Eurydice has been produced at Madison Repertory Theatre and Berkeley Repertory Theatre.… (mais)

This is the first collection of Sarah Ruhl's plays I have read. None in the collection quite match up to the surreal beauty of The Clean House but my favorite, mostly for it's deft handling of the theme of identity and gender identity in contemporary America, was Late: A Cowboy Song. If you're looking to read more modern American playwrights check out Sarah Ruhl. Do it! ( )

Sarah Ruhl is a fascinating author...fascinating in that she superficially looks like a cross between Pinter and Beckett. Fascinating in that her work appears quite profound and important. Fascinating in that close inspection actually reveals that her work has only a superficial appearance of meaning and importance, and that in fact, it is quite pretentious. And she appears to hate professional women (which is supported by some of the things she has said in interviews). And then, just when you think all is hopeless, she gives you a marvelous work, tucked in at the end of the book to ensure leaving a good feeling, in the form of Eurydice. Talking stones, rooms of string, and raining elevators are just a few of the things you will find in the final play, the one gem in a book of plays that want to be able to live up to that work. In short, skip the book, get an acting edition of Eurydice, and devote an hour to reading that. Leave the rest on the shelf - especially Clean House, in which she stereotypes every character and leaves you feeling like your own house needs to be cleaned, so you can throw out all your Sarah Ruhl books.

First, I have seen "Passion Play" and "In the Next Room, or, the vibrator play" of Sarah Ruhl's oeuvre. I have read only the latter, and "Eurydice".

Second, "In the Next Room" is one of the best plays of the past ten years. I have very little doubt that Sarah Ruhl is one of the most exciting American playwrights of the early twenty-first century.

So when I say this collection does not live up to her talent, believe me.

"Eurydice" is interesting, but I suspect it plays infinitely better than it reads. "Late: a Cowboy Song" is interesting, but I suspect the parts that interest me -- namely, the gender issues around Blue's intersexuality and Red's gender performance are not the parts which get emphasized in production (one day I will stop trying to read stories that people didn't write). "Melancholy Play" I really shouldn't say anything about, because Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy is a work I find deeply troubling and fascinating in roughly equal measure and I suspect that my feeeeeeelings about it are bleeding over, because I found "Melancholy Play" to be really distressing but I can't say exactly why. "The Clean House" did not leave me with much of an impression.

Ehhhhhhh. ( )

Sarah Ruhl is one of the best new playwrights working to day. Her plays are poetic, lyrical, and gently absurd. My favorites were Melancholy Play and Eurydice. ( )
