Afridiziak Theatre News Interview

Wow, time flies and so much had happened after the Maids, in fact we're still in post production!

I have linked an interview I had with a lovely journalist named Chloe Thomas. She says, and I quote:

I can happily predict the Spence star is on the rise.
Not bad for a Nottingham lass!

The Maids are BACK! This time for a bit longer....

Following the successful week-long run at the Etcetera Theatre, Nomads of Bazar are transferring Jean Genet’s classic, The Maids, to the Greenwich Playhouse. The play was last performed in Greenwich 35 years ago in 1974 and starred the oscar-winning Glenda Jackson, Susannah York and Vivien Merchant, who all went on to act in the successful film of the same name.

Two Maids. Madame. One cup of tea. Que les jeux commencent!

Emilija Ellen as Solange, Claire Spence as Madame & Irena Grgona as Claire

In the secrecy of Madame’s boudoir, surrounded by a sweet scent of gladioli and mimosa two sisters viciously plot revenge against their employer.

The question remains - will the Maids see it through?

Nomads of Bazar presents Genet’s classic play loosely based on the infamous Papin sisters, who brutally murdered their employer and her daughter.

Staged as a truly modern tale of the beautiful and the damned and set within the pop culture and media world of the 21st century, the play challenges the boundaries between love, sexuality and criminal intent.

A production that will assault all your senses: fast paced and time pressured as the times we live in today, it delivers a bittersweet experience not easily forgotten!

Directed by Gael Colin. Design by Roberta Bratovic. Stage photography by Yasmine Braa. Stage lighting & sound design by Dan Webb.
