About the Performance:
Jean Genet’s “The Maids” is about sisters, Claire and Solange. Trapped in a life they didn’t ask for and can’t leave, they pass the time by impersonating their Madame, with Claire dressing up in her fine clothes and makeup and relishing her role as the cruel, bullying mistress. As the sisters dig deeper into their make-believe, their games explore the struggle against and within their identities and class roles. An edgy, absurdist fantasy about class and pain; power and playacting, this play is deeply thought provoking and humorous.
Theatre for Good raises money for charity through performances of modern and classic theatre for the community.
