Sydney Theatre Company returns to Lincoln Center Festival with Cate Blanchett, Isabelle Huppert, and Elizabeth Debicki in Jean Genet’s The Maids. Inspired by the story of the infamous Papin sisters who brutally killed their employer and her daughter, Genet’s play delves into the rituals of siblings Claire and Solange — played by Blanchett and Huppert — as they take turns playing both sides of the power divide and plot the demise of the domineering Mistress (Debicki). The production is directed by one of Australia’s most regarded theatrical talents, Benedict Andrews.

In 2012, Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya was a break-out hit of Lincoln Center Festival, and with this North American premiere of The Maids, the company brings yet another acclaimed new staging to New York.

Venue Description: Built in 1943, NY City Center was Manhattan's first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia. Today, City Center is home to many distinguished companies, including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, City Center's Principal Dance Company, as well as Manhattan Theatre Club and New York City Opera; a roster of renowned national and international visiting artists; and its own critically acclaimed and popular programs, including the Tony-honored Encores! musical theater series, Encores! Off-Center, the annual Fall for Dance Festival, and more.
