CLEAN: THE MUSICAL
Clean: The Musical explores the lives of seven women living in the historic Roundhill (or Laundry Hill) area of Brighton through different eras. It highlights how much has and hasn’t changed from 1870 to today, and is a rousing celebration of women's resilience through difficult times.
Sisterhood is a common thread - from laundry to women’s hospital to modern female friendships. Other themes include suffrage, sexuality, mental health and - topically - the smallpox outbreak in 1950, which has eery parallels with COVID seventy years later.
Winner of the Outstanding Theatre Award at Brighton Fringe, 2021.
