Keeping the House in Order

The trial of Oscar Pistorius was adjourned this week. If Pistorius had a maid, she would be out of a job. Now she must search for a new one. But her interviewers do not intend to employ her - they just want to know the inside track on the celebrity story of the decade. The play is an original and surreal exploration of the trial that has gripped South Africa and the wider world since it began.

Directed by Nandita Ghose
