About this show

Sydney Theatre Company returns to Lincoln Center Festival with Cate Blanchett, Isabelle Huppert, and Elizabeth Debicki in Jean Genet's The Maids. Inspired by the story of the infamous Papin sisters who brutally killed their employer and her daughter, Genet's play delves into the rituals of siblings Claire and Solange—played by Blanchett and Huppert—as they take turns playing both sides of the power divide and plot the demise of the domineering Mistress (Debicki). The production is directed by one of Australia's most regarded theatrical talents, Benedict Andrews.
