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
Reviews & Ratings
Twelfth Night, or What You Will, by William Shakespeare, is a comedy about a cross-dressing, ship-wreck surviving, poetry-loving girl (Viola) who finds herself at the center of a not-so-average love triangle. Full of music, riotous behavior, drink, dance and giving in to self-indulgence, it is thought to be the last romantic comedy penned by the Bard. Colorful and exotic, Twelfth Night is Shakespeare at his comedic best.
