This award-winning drama by Wendy Kesselman explores the true story of two sisters who murdered their employer and her daughter in 1930s France. What drove these two young women, who served as maids in the household, to such a desperate act? Class conflict, family dysfunction, loneliness, and love all play a role in this complex and devastating tale. The story of Christine and Léa Papin has spawned more than two dozen books, plays, and movies. What drew Theatre Pro Rata to Kesselmans script is the way it gives the sisters humanity. The production's designers are playing with a very haute couture aesthetic: Were digging in to the nightmare of it, which is very tantalizing, says director Carin Bratlie Wethern.
