"A fantasy -about pain, about playacting, mixed in with a deep understanding of how power works on the powerless." -The New Yorker
Filled with self-loathing and driven by desperation, the titular characters in Jean Genet’s groundbreaking play create elaborate and highly eroticized fantasy worlds in response to a lifetime of abuse. Their increasingly ruinous role-play is a trenchant statement about the accident of birth, the searing brutality of class distinctions, and the liberation that stems from destruction.
