True, this celebration for the centennial of the controversial French author’s birth also features a screening and a lecture (and a birthday party), but its centerpiece is the production of two short plays, the more popular The Maids (1947) and more obscure Deathwatch (1949). Each exemplifies his life-long interest in the often-violent psychosexual relationships that develop between very different people in close quarters, whether the S&M role-playing maids or the death row prisoners in Deathwatch.
