something clean - reading 20/9
A new take on life that changes everything
Welcome to the first reading of fall season 2021; Selina Fillinger's Something Clean which world premiered two years ago in New York to great acclaim. Join us here at the theatre or via our livestream!
Charlotte has been a mother for nineteen years, a wife for three decades, and a respectable community member her entire life. Recently however, a deep and upsetting stain has begun spreading over her seemingly spotless life. Her son is away for an unspeakable reason and she finds herself re-examining not only her responsibility as a parent but also her confining marriage with Doug. This new, questioning spirit is partly inspired by her new friendship with Joey, a young man at the center where she starts volunteering. Step by step she grows bolder in her new beliefs, leading to disruptive consequences.
The play world premiered in New York 2019 to great acclaim from audience and press. It became critic's pick in The New York Times:
”A beautifully observed, richly compassionate new drama.” – The New York Times
The reading is performed in English, directly from the original script.
