JOSETTE SIMON, who also recently starred at the Barbican in "The White devil". Also in the cast is KERRY FOX. "The Maids" by Jean Genet in a translation by David Rudkin is directed by John Crowley. The play features the blend of lyricism, religious and sexual themes that became the writers trademark. Every night Claire and Solange act out an obsessive fantasy of murdering their mistress. This is the only escape the sisters have from the daily humiliation of serving 'Our Lady'. Then one day fantasy takes over reality.

This play then goes to the Richmond Theatre for 9-13 September (BO 0181 940 0088).
