Domestic roles and social identity form the nexus of Jean Genet’s The Maids, in which sisters in service mock, provoke and plot to murder their mistress. Offstage Theatre presents the spare, fast-paced drama starring Emma Strock (far left), Arrietta van der Voort (left) and Megan Hillary in a site–specific staging at a historic local home.

Through 6/18. $15, 8:30pm. By reservation only. McShane House, 209 Maury Ave.
