The Maids

Claire and Solange. Sisters bound together by a web of secrets, make believe and incest. Together they've built a fantasy world, a world filled with flowers where they are in charge and where outsiders get their just desserts. The only thing that's spoiling it is reality - the mundanity of an everyday life in which their very existence depends on polishing Madame's shoes, cleaning her gowns and serving her tea. But Claire and Solange have a little surprise for their mistress and they just can't wait to see her face. Fantasy and reality are about to merge.
Author Jean Genet

Production details

Phizzical Productions have chosen to transpose the text to 19th century India, as its value systems demonstrate the politics of power and class, while the stylistic and expressionistic nuances lend themselves to the illusory world inhabited by the maids.
