by Jean Genet, directed by Michele Chivu
Staged at a very creepy 5,000 square foot warehouse turned art space, The Maids eerily goes inside the disturbed minds of two servant girls (played here by two men) plotting the murder of their haughty mistress. Impersonating the grating qualities of the Madame, the two girls all too realistically, role-play how they are going to do the deed in a dangerous mise-en-scène. After the Madame returns from the police precinct supporting her monsieur for a crime that the maids framed him for, they incompetently try and realize the game they had been playing and finally kill her. When they fail, unbeknownst to Madame, the game takes a dangerous and unexpected turn!
