[Playing] The MaidsA multi-cultural, multi-linguistic cast 'play' Jean Genet's seminal post-war play, The Maids.
A roller-coaster, whirligig ride into the constant interplay between power and dispossession, desire and fulfillment, 'appearance and reality', the 'imaginary and the real'. Jean-Paul Sartre described the two maids as ciphers—each has 'no other function than to be the other, to be—for the other—herself-as-other...Each bears witness to the other of the impossibility of being herself..'
