CASA Festival presents

The Only Thing a Great Actress Needs is a Great Play and the Desire to Succeed

by VACA 35

Directed by Damián Cervantes


Two Mexican household servants get ready for the day ahead. They cook breakfast, wash, dance and tell stories. Could they ever do anything else?

Inspired by Genet’s The Maids, 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.
