THE MAIDS

JANUARY 2020 Tour

THE MAIDS | by JEAN GENET

directed by Connor Berkompas

Two domestic servants, deeply resentful of their social position, attempt to murder their mistress. 

Based on the true story of the Papin sisters, two live-in maids who killed their employer's wife and daughter, Jean Genet's 1947 psychodrama takes us deep into the "shadows where servants dwell."

Each night, sisters Claire and Solange perform a dangerous ceremony when their socialite employer is away. As they religiously enact the murder of their mistress, the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur. This boldly intimate production explores Genet’s seductive world of role-playing where power, sexual identity, and desire are constantly in flux.

 

Nervous Theatre brings this contemporary adaptation of Genet's absurdist classic to the West Coast in its inaugural touring production.
