Cate Blanchett returns to the New York stage this summer with the Sydney Theatre Company production of Jean Genet’s The Maids. Blanchett stars opposite French stage & screen veteran Isabelle Huppert and rising Australian star Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby). 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 (Blanchett and Huppert) —as they take turns playing both sides of the power divide and plot the demise of the domineering Mistress (Debicki). The Maids is directed by one of Australia’s most regarded theatrical talents, Benedict Andrews.
“This is an opportunity to see two of the world’s best actresses playing opposite one another in a confronting but absorbing play, and to witness the debut stage role of a young actress who is billed by many to be the next Cate Blanchett. Don’t miss it.”
