The Maids - Hedgepig Theatre
The Maids by Jean Genet Directed by Andy Curry
Two sisters plot the murder of their Mistress. But it has to be right. It has to be perfect. Ritual turns to compulsion. Compulsion turns to obsession. Until their world unravels around them.
Hedgepig Theatre's dark, claustrophobic production combines their trademark flair for storytelling with jarring movement work, live music, innovative visuals and striking design. Genet’s blackly comic play follows the winding paranoias and destructive power plays of two sisters, trapped between their love and hatred of their mistress and each other.

A little about Hedgepig Theatre: Hedgepig Theatre was founded by Director/Actor Andy Curry and Actress/Writer Gemma Sharp. They produce both work ranging from full scale theatre productions, promenade storytelling performances in country houses to intimate stripped-down pub theatre, and everything in between.
