Machinal
Description

A riveting, expressionistic denunciation of misogynistic culture.   #metoothroughtheages

A prominent example of American Expressionist theatre, Machinal portrays the 1920s as a time when women were systematically marginalized and viewed as property or playthings in a male dominated, increasingly mechanized society. This shocking, surreal drama is a stunning denunciation of a misogynistic culture which, unfortunately, is still recognizable in our own time.   Machinal is loosely based on the true story of Ruth Snyder, whose trial for the murder of her husband was covered by Treadwell as a reporter.
