About the Event


Genre: Theatre


Psychological Spring Cleaning is a fast paced comedy about a dysfunctional family in a rare moment of acknowledgement. Sam calls a family intervention but gets stuck in traffic. Her parents and siblings arrive and realize that they don’t know who it’s for- and that it could be for any of them. Passive aggression, aggression and passivity run rampant as they defend themselves and accuse each other, waiting for Sam to arrive and reveal who will be in the hot seat. A neurotic family attempts a moment of connection and healing as archetypes crack open into a reflection of gender norms and mental health. It’s like Arrested Development meets God of Carnage.
