Inspired by the infamous 1927 murder trial of spouse killer Ruth Snyder, Machinal is the powerful tale of one woman's isolation in a life that's been entirely decided for her. Snyder is trapped first in a dead-end job, then forced to marry her boss and have a baby with him. But when she begins to discover her own carnal desires while having an affair with a younger man, the story takes a violent turn. Written in 1928, playwright and journalist Sophie Treadwell's expressionistic masterpiece explores traditional gender roles and the illusion of choice in modern society. While the play is decades old, it's still eerily relevant for today's audiences. Learn More

I have never seen a similar presentation before and thought to give it a try. WOW- was I in for a very pleasant surprise! It is a very unusual and different performance and something that you will either admire or be turned off by it. I was fascinated by the strength of the performers to create a visual delight by sheer physical movements. Even the costumes were very creative and underlined the other components of the performance. Such a delight.
