WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Revenge tragedy meets film noir in this seductively playful and incendiary masterpiece from Jean Genet. House-maid sisters Solange and Claire spend their days dreaming of escape, while their bourgeois employer Madame floats through life on champagne bubbles - until fantasies turn deadly in this thrilling psychological kaleidoscope of a play. Set in a phantasmagoric world of masks and mirrors, ceremonies and sensuality, heightened language and beautiful gesture, The Maids is ritualistic exploration of class, the nature of identity, and the power of imagination. Red Bull Theater presents this rare revival, the first major New York revival of this modern classic in years, in a uniquely intimate and immersive setting with limited seating in the round.
