 THE 

 MAIDS 

 BY JEAN GENET

 25A BELVOIR DOWNSTAIRS

 SEPTEMBER 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 denouement. 

 

Darkly compelling, disturbingly resonant, and boldly theatrical, this production propels The Maids directly into our world and into the claustrophobic Belvoir Downstairs space.

By Jean Genet in a translation by Bernard Frechtmann
