The Maids

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 to Saturday, 23 June 2018

THE MAIDS by Jean Genet, first performed in 1947, is regarded as one of the greatest French plays of the 20th Century. Loosely based on a real-life murder, Genet’s play has its own unique reality based on dreams, fantasies, desires and power. The audience is led through a heightened world in which one is never certain what is true and what is illusion. What is certain, however, is that there are always the dominated and the domineering, and in this power struggle there is always the potential for revolution – real or imagined.  Rated M+15 Check out Scarlett Entertainments Facebook link
