The Maids

September 18 - November 6, 2016

Jean Genet's The Maids

Translated by Bernard Frechtman

Directed by Stephanie Shroyer

Filled with self-loathing and driven by desperation, the titular characters in Jean Genet’s groundbreaking play create elaborate and highly eroticized fantasy worlds in response to a lifetime of abuse. Their increasingly ruinous role-play is a trenchant statement about the accident of birth, the searing brutality of class distinctions, and the liberation that stems from destruction.

Running Time: 92 minutes without an intermision

“Soars” – LA Times
"Thought provoking” – Hollywood Progressive
"A rare opportunity to see this thrilling play produced" – South Pasadena Review
