Summer Rental: The Maids

August 25

8pm

by Jean Genet / Directed and translated by Nancy Jones

With Erica Chappell, Peter LaPrade, Les Gibbs

Genet’s 1947 drama centers on two maids, Claire and Solange, who engage in ritualistic, sadomasochistic “games” while their employer, known only as Madame, is away. In this intimate three-person piece, with repetitive action and dialogue that ranges from ornate to crude, Genet delves into issues of class, power, sexuality, and gendered performance.
