Claire and Solange are sisters who know little of the outside world. All
of their lives they have been obedient maids to the same woman, in the
same house, leading the same life. After a lifetime of quiet servitude,
the time has finally come for them to escape. Having been rehearsing for
this night for quite sometime, they are finally ready to kill their
master. Based on a real incident, Genet's tale of two maids who plot to
kill their mistress has been shocking and intriguing audiences for years.
Bold and raw, THE MAIDS is a haunting and unforgettable story.
