The Maids - SEATTLE
Each night, sisters Claire and Solange perform a dangerous ceremony when their socialite employer is away. As they religiously enact the murder of their mistress, the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur.
This boldly intimate production explores Genet's seductive world of role-playing where power, gender identity, and desire are constantly in flux.
Nervous Theatre brings this contemporary adaptation of Genet's absurdist classic to Seattle with its inaugural touring production directed by Connor Berkompas.
