Performed in an an arena setting and following Jerzy Grotowski's vision of Poor Theatre, this production of Jean Genet's first play intimately presents the spectacle of three young men alienated by society, playing roles in a criminal hierarchy and system of morals and values opposite to that mainstream society in order to seek a justification that will forever elude them.
