THE MAIDS
Savage Rose Classical Theatre Company
The Maids
By Jean Genet
Adapted and directed by Tad Chitwood

Featuring Victoria Reibel, Karina Strange, and Beth Tantanella

Jean Genet's "The Maids", first performed in Paris in 1947, has long been a staple of confrontational and daring contemporary theatre. It was particularly championed by Jean-Paul Sartre, Jean Cocteau, and Pablo Picasso, all of whom were instrumental in bringing it to the stage. "The Maids" (in French, "Les Bonnes") is essentially unclassifiable. By turns absurdist, symbolic, and reflective of Artaud's "Theatre of Cruelty," it remains a masterpiece of stunning theatrical energy. The maids are Solange and Claire, lower-class domestics deeply resentful of their inferior social position, who try to revenge themselves against society by destroying Madame, their employer. That process, however, leads them to an odd role-playing ritual during which murder becomes, in their minds, not so much a possibility as a necessity. Controversial, shocking, and fascinating, "The Maids" has not lost its power since its first production.
