Winner of BEST SET DECOR at Ozone Festival 2016!!


This theatre piece first premiered in Paris in 1947.  “The Maids” is a one-act play, based loosely on the true story of the gruesome murder of a well-to-do mother and daughter by their maids.  

‘The Maids” has a swirling plot line that is completely different than most current North American fiction that usually has a happy ending where the hero saves the day. ‘The Maids” has just three stylized characters: a Madame who is fixed in her upper class lifestyle and the two maids who play out their rituals showing that they are just as caught in their domestic employment roles. 

This production explores the internal crisis experienced by people who are oppressed by class or other situations and may seek violent means of escape.  The playwright, Jean Genet, was born in 1910 and lived in France as a foster child, then male prostitute and convicted thief through he detritus of two world wars.  He is one of the leading “theatre of the absurd” writers.

Starring in this production are Jodi Bremner as Madame, Mandy Penner as Claire and Felisha Anderson as Solange, the two sisters who are employed as maids to Madame.  Director is Joanne Feenstra, co-Producers are Lara Sheridan and Sheryl Hamilton.


This show runs approximately 60 min and contains adult content.

UPDATE: Preview in the Vernon Morning Star
