Description

Full Length Play

Drama

Genet's horrifying vision has aroused violent controversy. Kenneth Tynan called it "a theatrical experience as startling as anything since Ibsen's revelation about syphilis." The setting is a brothel in the midst of a revolution that has wiped out all the real holders of power except the Chief of Police, who now enlists the regular customers to play out the fantasy roles that destiny has denied them. In macabre, climactic scenes, the playwright develops his mocking view of man and society.
