Two sisters, Solange and Claire, struggle to believe their existence as maids is anything but sub-human. Each night they enact a secret fantasy while their mistress is away. When their attempt to destroy Madame's love affair goes awry, their hopes for transcendence grow increasingly slim. A desperate hunger for dignity drives their sadistic ritual to new depths.
The Maids is a dazzling mirror maze of identity, status and cruelty. Outliers Theatre Co. is proud to debut with our intimate production of Genet's beautiful and controversial play.
