In The Maids, two house maids play at being mistress and servant but never quite get to the end of their role-playing before their actual mistress arrives home. Presented with an opportunity to kill the woman they both love and hate, the sisters conflate reality and fantasy, blurring the lines between murder and suicide as they finally succeed in ending the game they’ve been playing for so long.
Audiences will love peeling back the layers of truth and falsity as they navigate the twists and turns of this delightfully complex and entertaining play.
Following a show that will give you an intellectual workout, join DP2A friends for a drink at a local bar. Details will be shared closer to the performance.
