The Maids
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A bit of role-play never hurt anyone, right? Two maids play a game of murder. Their mistress doesn't know the half of it. The oppressed spit at sympathy and look for loopholes, as power and performance are stretched to the limit. This all-female company present a fierce and visceral production of Genet's iconoclast drama, in a biting translation by Martin Crimp. 'My turn to take control.'
