The Maids marks the 70th anniversary of its first production. Exploring themes of jealousy, murder and betrayal – The Maids is a play of masks and mirror, symbols and rituals, dreams and illusions.

This mix between fantasy and reality follows maids, Solange and Claire, unable to escape their dismal lives; together they have built a fantasy world, torn by love and loathing of their mistress. This comedy quickly turns into tragedy, and the two young women find themselves the prisoners of their own game.

This female three-hander stars the three original Ensemble members, performing together as a three-piece for the first time in 18 years. A psychological thriller that promises to be just as powerful as it was when it was first performed in 1947!
