Bus Barn Stage Company’s production of “The Clean House” is scheduled to open this week and run through June 16 in Los Altos.

Nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, Sarah Ruhl’s “House” is a comedy for mature audiences.

Set in a metaphysical Connecticut, the play begins by introducing Lane and Charles, married doctors in need of care for their house and hearts. Lane hires Matilde, a young Brazilian woman who has come to the U.S. to escape her past and is obsessed with finding the perfect joke. As the couple’s marriage falls apart, Matilde finds herself in the middle of the crisis.

Directed by Jeanie K. Smith, Bus Barn’s production features Leslie Breton, Monica Cappuccini, Sondra Putnam, Carolyn Ford Compton and Steve Lambert.

Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 3 p.m. June 3, 7:30 p.m. June 6 and 13, and 7 p.m. June 10 at the Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave. Thursday’s show is a preview and Friday is opening night.

Tickets are $24 for the preview, $32 opening night, $30 Thursdays through Saturdays and $26 Sundays. Discounts are offered to students under 18 with ID.
