Runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize in 2005. The play takes place in Connecticut, where married doctors employ a Brazilian housekeeper who is more interested in coming up with the perfect joke than cleaning. Trouble erupts when the husband falls in love with one of his patients. This theatrical and wildly funny look at class, comedy and the nature of love gives new meaning to the phrase, "I almost died laughing."

"Fresh, funny... a memorable play, imbued with a comforting philosophy: that the messes and disappointments of life are as much a part of its beauty as romantic love and chocolate ice cream, and a perfect punch line can be as sublime as the most wrenchingly lovely aria." -NY Times.

"Casts a spell that had me hooked." -NY Daily News
