"Machinal" directed by Roger Bechtel
Feb. 21,22,23 and Feb 27, 28, March 1
Rebecca Hall plays a stenographer in the industrial, male-dominated world of the 1920s, where life is nothing like she hoped it would be. Restless and unfulfilled in a passionless marriage and unwanted motherhood, she finds her only joy in the form of an illicit love affair. But when reality sets in and she must return to her routine existence, she’ll go to any lengths to regain her freedom.
Taking place just before the great Depression, Sophie Treadwall's play tracks the life of a desperate young woman destroyed by the world of money, men and machines.
