The Maids: Project

Culture Catch

"Godec and Townsend imbue their roles with an intensity that embodies the bond between the sisters as a crackling mix of hostility and a deep, borderline sensual love."
The Maids: Quote

NY Theater Guide

"The cast and creative team expertly navigated the fine line between chaos and structure, transcending the basic requirements of performance and entering the realm of the deeply symbolic."
The Maids: Quote

Let's talk off broadway

"The heat of emotions and tightly entwined dialog of these two sisters, who know each other too well, was breath-taking."

Plays to See

"The chemistry that Godec and Townsend share amplifies the tension between the sisters, whether it be familial, conspiratorial, or sexual – all of which the actors accomplish with an incredible ferocity."
