By Jean Genet. A new translation by Andrew Upton and Benedict Andrews
4 June - 20 July 2013, Sydney Theatre Company
Cate Blanchett is directed by Benedict Andrews for the third time in a fresh exploration of Jean Genet’s The Maids. Joining them is one of the most acclaimed European actors of her generation, Isabelle Huppert, described by The Guardian as “fearless, bold and ferociously brilliant”. With Huppert and Blanchett as the vengeful sisters enacting their elaborate murderous fantasies, The Maids will be one of the most compelling theatrical events of the year.
