MACHINAL 

By Sophie Treadwell 

December 5 - 8, 2019 

"The Plot is the story of a woman who murders her husband - an ordinary young woman, any woman." 

So begins Sophie Treadwell's Expressionistic play about a woman’s monotonous life in the “machine” of industrialized capitalism.  An unflinching and poignant examination of the working class, Machinal tells its social commentary in an evocatively theatrical way – unafraid to dive into topics like homosexuality and abortion, this groundbreaking work premiered nearly a century ago and still resonates to the 21st century audience. 

Machinal is presented through special arrangement with The Roman Catholic Church Diocese of Tucson.
