Inspired by the real-life events surrounding the murder trial and execution of Ruth Snyder in 1920s America, Machinal highlights a young woman’s experience of a society in which free choice, power and agency are the privilege of the few.
This young woman, an ordinary young woman, cannot find her place, cannot find peace in an industrialised world where ordinary people are compelled to submit to the repetitive machinery of life. When she finds herself caught in a loveless marriage, our ordinary young woman’s bid to be free leads to devastating consequences.
Machinal is presented through special arrangement with the Roman Catholic Church Diocese of Tucson.
Approximate running time: 1 hour 45 minutes without an interval.
