The Balcony: Jean Genet's Raunchy, Revolutionary Political Comedy
Set in a European brothel amidst a revolution in the streets, The Balcony was so scandalous when it was first unleashed upon the world that it was banned in Paris and had to be premiered in a private club in London. Written by master French novelist and playwright Jean Genet (The Maids, The Blacks, The Screens), The Balcony deals in matters of revolution vs. counter-revolution and reality vs. illusion as the employees and patrons of the Grand Balcony brothel forge a society all their own. STAGEStheatre Programming Director Dave Barton, who has previously directed a successful production of The Maids, directs the show from a hilarious '70s British translation by Barbara Wright and Terry Hands.
