Jean Genet’s The Maids.

Last chance to see the MA production of The Maids is this evening (Wednesday 8th December) at 7pm in Studio 1 of the Workshop Theatre.

Jean Genet’s The Maids caused a scandal when it opened in Paris in 1947 for its stark portrayal of seething working class discontent. This dark and brooding play depicts two sisters, servants in an upper-class Parisian home, who nightly engage in a secret ceremony of revenge while their mistress is away. The story follows the sisters as they weave through past and present, fiction and fantasy, truth and lies, and finally, detection and escape. For Solange and Claire, the ritual becomes reality as they face the ultimate challenge of despair, jealousy, hatred, and sisterly love.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
