Unveiling Secrets & Unraveling Desires: Experience ‘The Maids’ at Cedar Crest College   Image

This Women’s History Month, step into the captivating world of 1940s France as Cedar Crest College’s Department of Performing Arts presents “The Maids.” Delve into the shadowy depths of power, desire, and complex female relationships, where every twist and turn promises to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. 

Loosely based on true events, this gripping tale follows the tumultuous relationship between two maids, Claire and Solange, as they navigate their resentment and jealousy toward their employer, the wealthy Madame. As the maids indulge in elaborate role-playing games, the lines between reality and fantasy quickly start to blur. Tensions escalate, secrets unravel, and the bodies start piling up.  

Directed by Clair M. Freeman, the three-person cast consists of entirely of Cedar Crest’s own students, including: 

Ashly Rodriguez as Claire 

Sofia Barbour as Solange 

Lizbeth Parra as Madame 

Performances will be in the Tompkins College Center & Samuels Theatre on Cedar Crest College’s campus.
