Featuring the students of the Department of Theatre.

Written by Sophie Treadwell
Direction by Maggie Lally

Inspired by the infamous 1927 murder trial of Ruth Snyder, Machinal is a gripping drama by American journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell.  It’s America’s Golden Age, a time of happiness, freedom and prosperity – or is it?  For one young woman in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, life is nothing like she hoped it would be.  Tormented and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and an unwanted motherhood, she finally discovers joy in the form of an illicit love affair and her life is forever changed.  A groundbreaking work in the landscape of American theatre, Machinal is a riveting look at how advances in the industrial age (not unlike the digital age)  created an atmosphere virtually devoid of empathy and humanity trapping many women in a male-dominated oppressive wasteland.
