In every artistic context, the imagery of a woman of color in a maid’s uniform will immediately spark controversy. A Thousand Maids looks at this legacy, from actors who are still asked to wear the uniform now, to cinematic foremothers like Lupe Ontiveros and Butterfly McQueen.

 

This new play will be presented as a reading. Readings are an essential part of the play development process. We are proud to offer this as part of our On The Radar (OTR) New Works Program that aims to support the creation of diverse new stories by emerging U.S. playwrights. Click here to learn more about OTR.
