The Jamie Lloyd Company’s first production of 2016 will be the full-throttle UK premiere of a contemporary adaptation of Jean Genet’s masterpiece, The Maids – not seen in the West End for twenty years.
Director Jamie Lloyd has assembled a powerhouse trio of actors - double Emmy Award winning Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat) and Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey), to tackle this explosive psycho-drama.
In a luxurious bedroom, two maids fantasize about killing their employer, playing out dangerous and sadistic scenarios as they plan her violent death.
An intense psychological thriller seething with unique theatricality and brimming with intrigue, The Maids is a vicious analysis of the class system, and a provocative exploration of sexuality.
Thursday 17 March (Matinee and & Evening) & Friday 18th March (Evening) Zawe Ashton will not be appearing.
Friday 25 March (Evening) & Saturday 26 March (Matinee and Evening) Uzo Aduba will not be appearing.
