This is a very quiet and understated observational drama. It's not just quiet, but patient... It's also very compassionate.

This wry, delicately austere debut from Mexican theatre director Lila Avilés goes one step further. To quote a famous TV sitcom line: "I don't speak maid." With Avilés's help, we're taught a new language.

The Chambermaid's quietness, subtlety and modesty of style always keep it dramatically engaging.
