Directed by John Patterson
Following our run of Sartre’s No Exit in November, we return to Barons Court Theatre with another classic masterpiece, Jean Genet’s The Maids. In a luxurious bedroom, two maids fantasise about killing their employer, playing out dangerous and sadistic scenarios as they plan her violent death. An intense psychological thriller, The Maids offers a vicious analysis of the class system and a provocative exploration of sexuality. This contemporary adaptation by Benedict Andrews and Andrew Upton was first performed by Sydney Theatre Company in 2013 and received its London premiere at Trafalgar Studios in 2016. If you missed it there, be sure to catch its first London revival at Barons Court Theatre!
