Production History

Machinal  | Open: 09/01/10 Close: 09/11/10 - Wings Theatre
New York City - 1928. Away from the bustle of Wall Street and the jazz of speakeasies, Helen Jones is trapped and suffocated by her duties as a daughter, a wife, and a mother. Yet after tasting a glimpse of passion and freedom through a brief love affair, she is unable to return to the confinement of her marriage and decides to do something no woman of her time would have dared... Only to have the machine of society and human justice force her back into submission.

Inspired by the notorious Snyder-Gray murder trial, Sophie Treadwell's Machinal first premiered on Broadway with Clark Gable in the role of Richard Roe and has been performed around the world for over 80 years. While very progressive in its original context, the play still remains one of the landmarks of American drama.
