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