10 Minute play

I wrote this play in weekend for The Ensemble Experiment, an three week practice pairing actors with playwrights to create a newly devised piece. It was produced by Kyle Hamlin. This particular play was first performed by Jelani Smith and Dezhane Rouse, who made the play 100% better than what it was on the page. They didn’t even have costumes and they still got my point across.
I was inspired by The Maids by Jean Genet and his use of costume and make pretend to bring forth France’s strong undercurrent of class resentment.
