By Jean Genet Directed by Carissa Licciardello

  • Venue Downstairs Theatre
  • Dates 25 Aug – 15 Sep 2018

    In a luxurious bedroom, two maids fantasise about murdering their Mistress, acting out the same elaborate ritual night after night. They can never quite make it to the grisly final scene – but tonight is different. As the boundaries between fantasy and reality begin to blur, a lifetime of oppression and brutality comes to a head in a shocking, unexpected climax.

    Darkly compelling, disturbingly resonant, and boldly theatrical, this production propels The Maids directly into our world.

    Presented by Glitterbomb at 25A.
