Sophie Treadwell's 1928 Expressionist Drama, Machinal, gives us a glimpse of the emotional interiority of a trapped young woman. As the broken cog in a capitalist and patriarchal machine, she searches desperately for meaning, love, and space to breathe. What lengths will she go to break free from the machine?

Content Warning: sexism, racism, abusive relationships, postpartum depression, murder.

Performed by arrangement with Nick Hern Books. Directed by Jenna Tamini.
