JEAN GENET DEATHWATCH PDF

I shifted. I tried every form and shape so as not to be a murderer. Tried to be a dog, a cat, a horse, a tiger, a table, a stone! I even tried, me too, to be a rose.

The equation is of course perverse, but it offers a penetrating glimpse inside the criminal mind and also becomes something of a reverse mirror image of civilization. The play is a contest. Maurice and Lefranc grind away at each other—like sandpaper on the brain. Finally, in anger, and to prove himself.

Lefranc strangles Maurice, a senseless murder. And, as such, it has an undeniable fascination. Joann Green, as director, begins by emphasizing the ritualistic aspects of the play. Maurice hums incessantly, Lefranc drums his hand against his cot, Green Eyes stares into space and then clangs his chains against the floor—until we feel the narrowness, the heavy oppressiveness of the prison. Basically, the director approaches the play on a naturalistic level—perhaps seeking to make the argument more dramatic.

The characters push and shove one another. They explode into temperament. The staging is, if anything, too tangible. One could imagine a more indirect, experimental treatment.

As the author said in his own stage directions.

Dihn The Maids is loosely based on the infamous Paoin sisters who brutally murdered their employer and her daughter, in Francethough the play is not the story of the Papin sisters as such. Start your free trial. The constant switching of role playing characters — again, in both plays — is fascinating to read. Genet is brilliant, what can I say.
