Edward Dick director

Inspired by the sensational trial of Ruth Snyder, a Long Island housewife who murdered her husband and died in the electric chair in 1927, Machinal is a powerful drama by campaigning journalist and playwright Sophie Treadwell.

Nine actresses share the role of the ‘Young Woman’ in scenes that explore the explosive pressures of American industrial life in this Expressionistic classic.

This is a play written in anger. In the dead wasteland of male society – it seems to ask – isn’t it necessary for certain women, at least, to resort to murder?” – Nicholas Wright
