Not sure why this play was dug up for a production. A bit uneven.

Helen’s entire life has been dictated to her. She she does what society expects of her, however resistant she may feel. She marries her boss, whom she finds repulsive and has a baby with him. Followed by an affair with a younger man who fuels her lust for life, she is driven to murder her husband. She is found guilty and is executed in an electric chair. Inspired by the real life case of executed murderess Ruth Snyder. Its 1928 Broadway premiere is considered one of the high-points of American Expressionist theater.
