The Sarah Ruhl play will begin previews Oct. 5 and run until Dec. 17, with an official opening on Oct. 30. No casting has been announced, but the design crew is as follows: sets by Christopher Acebo; costumes by Shigeru Yaji; lighting by Jim Ingalls; and sound design and music by André Pluess. Bill Rauch will direct.

Since its premiere at Yale Rep in New Haven in 2004, The Clean House has been seen at The Wilma Theater in Philadelphia, the Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, D.C., Chicago's Goodman Theatre, Milwaukee Rep, Denver Theater Company, Cincinnati Playhouse, and San Francisco's TheatreWorks.

Ruhl's work, about a well-ordered household that is turned upside down when an interesting new maid arrives, was a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist. It won the 2004 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

No casting has been announced for the LCT run. The cast of the Yale Rep premiere featured Tom Bloom, Carmen de Lavallade, Laurie Kennedy, Zilah Mendoza and Elizabeth Norment.
