Cate Blanchett Says Audiences Should Expect to Be Shocked by Her Latest Play 'The Maids'

“It is different – but I think it’s exciting,” Cate told the Sydney Morning Herald. “If anyone comes to Genet, they should be expecting to be shocked. Benedict [Andrews, the director] has such a long relationship with the company, and there’s also something uniquely Australian about the vernacular of this re-imagining of it.”

In case you missed the news, they just added an extra performance on August 9!

    I saw the play in Australia. It was very interesting, and the performances were outstanding. Cate looks great as usual.
