Machinal

TDPS Machinal

Machinal

College of Arts and Humanities | School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies Thursday, February 18, 2021 7:30 pm-9:30 pm Virtual,

By Sophie Treadwell
Brian MacDevitt, director

Written and set in New York City during the Prohibition Era, Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal is based loosely on the trial of Ruth Snyder, who murdered her husband in the 1920s. The story traces the life of a young woman navigating the twisting corridors of mental illness in an increasingly mechanized world. This production’s cinematic, expressionistic storytelling alternates between feelings of darkness and oppression and expressions of love, light and beauty.

“...a rare and disturbing beauty.”—Ben Brantley, The New York Times
