Machinal is a play originally written by Sophie Treadwell in 1928 about the real life case of Ruth Snyder, the first women sentenced to death for murdering her husband. Stephanie Joy Del Rosso’s fresh and fast-paced adaptation, MACHINALIA, brings this narrative into a contemporary setting.
In a time when our nation’s leader encourages misogyny and nasty language against women, what can women do to fight back. MACHINALIA tells the story of that fight.
