The Maids by Jean Genet.

In an opulent yet dismal world, two lost and desperate maids dream about enhancing their lives by escaping their livelihood, playing out dark and dangerous fantasies about killing their employer.

The Maids offers a provocative examination of beauty and a sharp interrogation of the question: what is freedom, and how far would you go to get it?

Genet loosely based his play on the infamous sisters Christine and Lea Papin, who brutally murdered their employer and her daughter in Le Mans, France in 1933.

Starring Batanai Mashingaidze, Keagan Carr Fransch and Stevie Hancox-Monk.
Directed by Samuel Phillips.
