The Maids is a fantasy about pain, about playacting, mixed with a deep understanding of how power works on the powerless.
Trapped in a master/servant relationship and dehumanized, the maids go through a variety of high emotional states — psychopathic, and highly self-destructive at the same time. This play questions the idea of ownership and examines how power is decided. Genet has written a dark and twisted power triangle to question the power distribution and struggles among people. As Theatre East N Bull, we would proudly present that we have tried to adapt it to today’s world and its new power dynamics.
