Description

One of the great masterpieces of the American Theatre, Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal explores with frightening intensity the American of the 1920s – and the nightmare nexus of capitalism, sexism and violence in an increasingly mechanized and dehumanizing society. Inspired by the"crime of the century" – the 1927 murder trial of Ruth Synder and Jud Grey – the play burst upon the Broadway stage with incandescent originality – and remains today as fresh and fearsome a look at modern life as it was then. The Open Fist Theatre is proud to present the Los Angeles premiere of this stunning and unforgettable work, by one of the country’s most important playwrights.
