The play features Terri Adams, a journalist who pushes aside her newlywed domestic apron for a six figure Anchor Job with WNY5. But when Terri starts neglecting home for her new position, her supportive husband comes to his wits end and demands she clean up her act, starting with the house. To keep the peace, her man and her job, Terri hires a local cleaning service recommended by a co-worker. But if not careful, she just might find "The Clean Up Woman" picking up more than she's supposed to.
JD Lawrence plays seven characters in the play (including a Hindu cab-driver, a 75 year old white man, a rapper, and a hairdresser).It also stars Emmy award winner Jackée Harry, Telma Hopkins, singer/actor Christopher Williams and Grammy award winner Fred Hammond.
The play is the highest grossing stage play since the theater's 1977 conception at Arts & Letters in Dallas.
