UK Department of Theatre and Dance presents 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.

General Admission seating.

This performance is in the Guignol Theatre of the UK Fine Arts Building, 465 Rose Street, Lexington.
