The Maids and No Way Out

Directed by Nick Philippou

The Actors Touring Company celebrates 15 years of award-winning. European classics with a bold double-bill which brings together the two most important French plays this century. Genet and Sartre, one disreputable, the other distinguished, share a wicked wit and portray in these two powerful one act plays a supreme insight into the darkest experiences of the human soul.

The Maids - Two servants have one mistress and while she's away they dress to kill. Their only designs are for death... But whose?

No Way Out - Two women... one man... one room... wiating. They are dead. This is Hell. Sinking into armchairs rather than fire and brimstone, they gradually discover that we are our own devils and angels. Hell is us.
