SUMMARY

'The Maids' by Jean Genet, inspired by the infamous Papin sisters, is the sinister story of two sisters - Solange and Claire - who are maids to a wealthy society Lady. From sadomasochistic fantasies concerning her and each other, portrayed through elaborately constructed 'rituals', to poignantly challenging notions of so-called morality, middle class values and upper class entitlement, this play questions where the true balance of social power lies, while power swings not only between the social divide but between the two sisters themselves.
