The Maids by Jean Genet

Directed by Brenley Charkow

Illusion. Reality. Ritual. Role-play.


Two Maids both love and hate their Mistress. To escape the world by which they are trapped, this world of servitude, the sisters create an elaborate realm of role-playing; its focus centers around the murder of Madame. While Madame is away, the two enact their elaborate sadomasochistic ritual, each taking turns portraying both sides of the power divide, donning the white dress of the Saint, and the red dress of The Criminal. The Maids are relative to everything and everyone. They are the Others.


Featuring: Carmen Nieuwenhuis, Kristen Padayas, Jordan Sabo
