Three convicts share a cramped prison cell. There is no question as to which of them is the dominant dog in the pack: Green Eyes Yeux-Verts has brutally murdered a woman and is to be executed. Lefranc and the younger novice-like Maurice are inside for less grave crimes. But both of them covet Green Eyes' attention, baiting each other in the process, a duel that drives inexorably toward violence.

Jean Genet was born in Paris in An illegitimate child who never knew his parents, he was abandoned to the Public Assistance Authorities. He was ten when he was sent to a reformatory for stealing; thereafter he spent time in the prisons of nearly every country he visited in thirty years of prowling through the European underworld. With ten convictions for theft in France to his credit he was, the eleventh time, condemned to life imprisonment. Eventually he was granted a pardon by President Auriol as a result of appeals from France's leading artists and writers led by Jean Cocteau.

Deathwatch review – Genet's clammily powerful prison struggle

Three prisoners are locked up in the same cell. Green-Eyes Yeux-Verts has killed a woman and is to be guillotined. Maurice and Lefranc are sentenced for more minor crimes. Maurice has a deep attachment to Green-Eyes, as does Lefranc, but secretly. Snowball himself is also condemned to death his presence in the play is only evoked, not actual and along with Green-Eyes they are considered the Kings of the prison.
