THE MAIDS

By Jean Genet
Directed by Jesse Berger

Revenge tragedy meets film noir in this seductively playful and incendiary masterpiece. House-maid sisters Solange and Claire spend their days dreaming of escape, while their bourgeois employer Madame floats through life on champagne bubbles - until fantasies turn deadly in this thrilling psychological kaleidoscope of a play. Set in a phantasmagoric world of masks and mirrors, ceremonies and sensuality, heightened language and beautiful gesture, The Maids is a ritualistic exploration of class, the nature of identity, and the power of imagination.

THE MAIDS premiered on March 6th and ran through April 1st for a strictly Limited Run.  Presented in a uniquely intimate setting it was the first major New York revival of this modern classic in years.
