Jean Cocteau Closes Out Season With The Maids, April 8-June 5

News   Jean Cocteau Closes Out Season With The Maids, April 8-June 5
 
Jean Cocteau Repertory, the Bowery-berthed Manhattan company with a reputation for keeping the classics alive, will conclude its 34th season with an April 8-June 5 run of Jean Genet's The Maids.

Bernard Frechtman wrote the translation of Genet's three-hander about two maids and their fascination with and hatred of the woman they serve. As in Genet's other dramas, issues of power, subservience, illusions and reality are played in a fast and loose manner. The new production will be set in 1940s Los Angeles (the play was written in 1947), with the employer of the maids recreated as a Hollywood starlet.

Jean Cocteau is located at the Bouwerie Lane Theatre (330 Bowery at Bond/East 2nd Street), its home for over 30 years. For tickets, please call TicketCentral.com at 212/279-4200 or visit online www.jeancocteaurep.org.
