About the Show Less...

Bittersweet and haunting play about two sisters who plot revenge against their employer. Read More >

In the secrecy of Madame’s boudoir, surrounded by a sweet scent of gladioli and mimosa two sisters viciously plot revenge against their employer.

Loosely based on the infamous Palpin sisters, who brutally murdered their employer and her daughter, The Maids is staged as a truly modern tale of the beautiful and the damned. Set within the pop culture and media world of the twenty-first century, the play challenges the boundaries between love, sexuality and criminal intent.
