This is A Clean Brush:

From the pen of Canada’s and Theatre 40’s favorite playwright Norm Foster comes the world premiere of his newest hilarious comedy, A Clean Brush. This brand new play tells the story of two house painters, Dick and Mello, who land a job painting a room in the basement of recently-widowed Zoe Craig’s home. Zoe’s husband died in the room, and now Zoe is looking to turn it into a rental cash cow. The house painters think this is just another job…until Zoe’s nosy neighbor stops by and plants doubt in their minds as to what really happened to Widow Craig’s clumsy spouse.

A Clean Brush marks the 6th Norm Foster play Theatre 40 has produced and it promises to keep you laughing from start to finish…or until the paint is fully dry.
