Common Ground Theatre "Small Series" Presents: The Maids by Jean Genet

Two maids plot the demise of their egotistical madame in this suspenseful and sexy French classic. The themes of class unrest and fame-seeking violence keep this script current as the audience is taken on a fantastical funhouse ride through the outsider world of Jean Genet.

Featuring Mary Guthrie, Amanda Hahn & Sheryl Scott. Directed and designed by Rachel Klem.

Common Ground Theatre's "Small Series" is an innovative theatre offering by many of the best performers in the Triangle area.
