The Maids

Darkly compelling, disturbingly resonant, and boldly theatrical

In a luxurious bedroom, 2 maids fantasise about murdering their mistress, acting out the same elaborate ritual night after night. They can never quite make it to the grisly final scene – but tonight is different. As the boundaries between fantasy and reality begin to blur, a lifetime of oppression and brutality comes to a head in a shocking, unexpected climax.

The Maids will bring together a company of some of Sydney’s most exciting emerging artists. It features a talented cast of NIDA graduates – Skyler Ellis, Amanda McGregor, and Melbourne-based Alexandra Aldrich, recently nominated for Green Room Awards for her performance in The Moors and Rivers of China (Don’t Look Away/Theatreworks). It also features the work of accomplished lighting designer Martin Kinnane, up-and-coming sound designer Ben Pierpoint and production designer Emma Vine, who made her Belvoir Upstairs Theatre as costume designer on The Sugar House.

The Maids is presented as part of Belvoir’s new 25A initiative, giving an independent theatre platform to some of Sydney’s most exciting emerging artists.
