Live Theatre Workshop Proudly Presents
The Housekeeper
By James Prideaux


Directed by
Christopher Johnson
Michael Woodson and Kristi Loera


"A hilarious comedy of amorous faux pas".—Rocky Mountain News
"The opening night audience was convulsed with laughter".—Barnstable Patriot


Foundering a bit after the death of his aged (and domineering) mother, Manley Carstairs, a self-styled literary artist, engages a housekeeper, Annie Dankworth, to look after his large Victorian house (and himself). When Annie first arrives, wearing sneakers and carrying her belongings in a grocery cart, Manley is taken aback, but she seems so eager to please that he relents after which their relationship progresses rapidly from initial reserve to active hatred. Annie is one of the world's great oddballs, who insults her employer, denigrates his writing, admits she forged her references, accuses Manley of lusting after her and, in general, makes his life  hell. The lively wit and biting humor become funnier as this odd couple go head to head in this outrageous comedy!!
