Each night, in the absence of their mistress, two maids, Solonge and Claire, enact a perverse, elaborate fantasy of bloody murder. Night in, night out, they role-play the sadistic slaughter of their Madame. Trapped by circumstance this ritual has become their only form of escape.

Seething with deliciously violent sensuality, this riotous exploration of class, gender and sexuality is delivered with a high octane glitter-slap of homoerotic theatricality.
In a dark, comic, drag ritual of the finest form, The Maids adorn the garments reserved for their Madame, drink in the power that clings to them and play a treacherous game of make believe.
Genet’s contemporary masterpiece reimagined by two of Melbourne’s most exciting award-winning theatre makers Adam Ibrahim and Samuel Russo (How To Kill The Queen Of Pop, 2017) and performed with Green Room Award Nominee Ruby Hughes (Conviction, 2017).

Presented in partnership with Brunswick Mechanics Institute.
