The Maids by Jean Genet
Directed by Claire Bergey ’17
November 3-5, 2016, Adams Memorial Theatre
“Madame will wear the red dress.” Jean Genet’s The Maids teeters on the knife’s edge between existentialist drama and sadomasochistic fantasy, surreal composure and eleventh-hour desperation, structure and effluvium. In one room, one act, and one evening, the maids turn and overturn their dominance—Madame willing or not.
