Sophie Treadwell is portrayed by acclaimed Washington actress Melissa Flaim.

Sophie Treadwell’s professional triumphs included a sensational in-person interview with the Mexican bandit Pancho Villa for the New York Tribune; an expressionist stage masterpiece, Machinal, that is today regarded as a classic; and victory in a courageous lawsuit against actor John Barrymore, who tried to steal one of her plays. But there were defeats and humiliations too. Throughout her life, Treadwell battled personal demons that threatened her happiness and even her sanity.
