Superstar director Jamie Lloyd presents a brand new production of Benedict Andrews and Andrew Upton's highly acclaimed contemporary adaptation of Jean Genet's The Maids as part of his hot new West End Season. Double Emmy Award Winner Uzo Aduba (Orange is the New Black), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat) and Laura Carmichael (Downton Abbey) are set to star in this tale of Claire and Solange Papin - two French sisters who serve as maids to a wealthy and beautiful woman, and their constant fantasising each time she is away about the myriad ways they would murder her.

Formerly the Whitehall Theatre, Trafalgar Studios (1 and 2) is a West End theatre in Whitehall. The building was designed by architects Tim Foster and John Muirm and in 1996, was Grade II listed by English Heritage. With a seating capacity of 380, Studio 1 is the larger of the theatre spaces and was opened in June 2004. The theatre was used as a television and radio studio from 1997 to 1999, and since 2004 it is now primarily used to stage plays and musicals.
