Jean Genet: “Les Bonnes”

This new production of Les Bonnes (The Maids) by Jean Genet, in the original French, captures the grim substance of the sisters’ relationship while dissecting the brutal social powers at play. The ensemble’s rich world of physical symbolism, bursts of sound and song create a visceral experience and catapults us into the here and now of Genet’s classic.

Founded by Roxane Revon & Laura Lassy Townsend, L’Atelier Theatre Productions supports emerging artists presenting bold theater projects in the French language in New York. This collective of artists is committed to placing the performer as creator at the heart of the collaborative process.
