About

Inspired by Genet's The Maids, two Mexican household servants get ready for the day ahead. They cook breakfast, wash, dance and tell stories in a sharp and revelatory piece that explores what it is to be marginalised and how those who live in poverty go about their day to day where there's no hope of escaping their circumstances. Simple, minimalist and beautifully performed by two brilliant actresses, The only thing a great actress needs...explores the fine line between humility and vanity and the female body in action.

Winner of several international theatre awards including Best Production at MESS Festival, Sarajevo.

Presented in Spanish with English surtitles.
