Machinal

Saturday, March 28, 2020, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM


First performed in 1928, and based loosely around the true events of the murder trial of Ruth Snyder in 1927, this astoundingly timeless and fearlessly frank examination of the ways society can provoke a womans self-destruction centers its focus on a young woman in the working class, much like many others. The progression of this young womans life is one that, in any industrial, capitalist society, works to be eerily familiar to all women on some level, monotonous, unfulfilling, and wholly shaped by the expectations of a world that demands only one script be followed. Machinal recognizes the truth in how all oppressions are intertwined. Outstandingly brave for its time, it remains a painfully evocative and astute study of womanhood in any age that values automation and expectations over human uniqueness in desires.
