written Jean Genet, Directed by Jimmy Smith, Choreographed by Abigail Levine and Pei-Chun Wang
This year marks the 60th Anniversary of the first staging of The Maids by Jean Genet, one of the most notorious and celebrated creative minds of the 20th century. Sisters Solange and Claire live a life of seething discontent as serving maids to a mistress they despise. Behind closed doors, they create a frenzied existence of secret ceremony that weaves through reality and fantasy, truth and lies, hatred and love, and ultimately, life and death. Genet's dialog at times borders on the absurd as he draws the viewer into a world of role play and tense intimacy between the three women. Throughout the spectacle, audience and players alike are forced to consider: 'Who is actually Who?'
