What happens if you just stop showering? The Mistakes Madeline made is a twisted and hilarious coming-of-age story about a girl who develops Autophobia, the fear of bathing. Struggling with a soul-crushing job as a personal assistant, she wages a furious, funny war against all things complacent, pampered and clean. As her smell starts to overwhelm her coworkers and many causal lovers - a series of bad poets - the play raises the questions: Is dirty living a political art? And is clean living even possible in these times of unrest? An unlikely story of love and dirty people.
