Jean Genet's The Maids provides the text for the second tape by Robert & Donald Kinney exploring their relationship as twins and their gay sexualities. Robert & Donald play the title roles of sisters, Claire and Solonge; domestic workers in service to a wealthy mistress. Woven into the convoluted dialogue, the sisters reveal how poverty and cultural marginalization breed a self-hatred that finds its locus in the image of one another. The production is a faux opulent garden of roses, sequined gowns and gilded furniture.
