Machinal is an expressionistic modern age tragedy of isolation turned to murder. Loosely based on the sensational 1927 murder trial of Ruth Snyder, the first woman put to death by the electric chair, the play is set against an industrial landscape. Playwright Sophie Treadwell’s classic early 20th century feminist play speculates about what circumstances might drive a seemingly harmless stenographer to commit murder in a male-dominated, mechanized, materialistic world. This play deals with adult themes and is intended for mature audiences.
