MACHINAL

Written by Sophie Treadwell in 1928, Machinal is a seminal feminist text inspired by the true crime story of convicted murderer Ruth Snyder, the first woman to be executed by electric chair in New York state. Treadwell’s protagonist, Helen, is at the mercy of the sexist rituals that society demands of her. in this 21st century reimagining, Helen’s punk alter-ego appears as a virtual ghost throughout the play in an attempt to save her from her inevitable demise.
