The Maids

THE MAIDS

DIRECTED BY THOMAS GRUENEWALD        WRITTEN BY JEAN GENET          OCTOBER 15th - 31st  2010

Jean Genet's classic comedy of murder, perversion and love was brought to the stage with gusto by an all male cast in the fall of 2010. Solange and Claire, two sisters working as maids in Paris in the 1930s, spend their days roleplaying as they fantasize about killing their madame. As they play their games. the line between fantasy and reality become tragically blurred, and the sisters must face the repercussions of their delusions in this darkly comic tale.
