This extraordinary drama, produced to acclaim at the Actors Theatre of Louisville originally, and at NYC's Second Stage is about a celebrated 's French murder case, in which two maids sisters were convicted of murdering their employer and her daughter.

The same murder of a Le Mans matron and her daughter by their two sister-servants inspired both Jean Genet's gender-bending The Maids and Wendy Kesselman's later naturalistic treatment. But where Genet delights in the twisted nightly rituals in which the maids transform themselves into their superiors, Kesselman conjures up a much more mundane preface to murder. Four years of indignities in a stifling provincial house--cramped quarters, meager pay, frosty silences--cause the sisters, who are bedeviled by incest, religious hysteria, and mental instability, to drift deeper into their own world. Finally a blown fuse and a burnt blouse trigger the slaughter.
