Theater Program Presents The Maids

The UNH Theater program’s production of The Maids by Jean Genet will continue from Thursday through Saturday, March 3-5, at 8 p.m. in Bucknall Theater in Dodds Hall. The play is directed by Jonathon Yukich, a lecturer in the theater program.

Part creepy, part sexy, The Maids was Jean Genet’s most popular play back when it first premiered in 1947. It tells the story of two domestic workers, deeply resentful of their inferior social position, trying to revenge themselves against society by destroying their employer. When their attempt to betray their mistress’s lover to the police fails and they are in danger of being found out, they dream of murdering Madame, little aware of the true power behind their darkest fantasy.

Tickets are available at the door and are “pay what you will.”
