Inspiration for "Machinal"

Our first mainstage production of the 2018-2019 season is a new adaptation of "Machinal" written and directed by Elaine Rava. Check out the Pinterest board our Artistic Director has been updating with inspiration for her next big project!

A young woman follows the path that society deems fit even though she feels resistance towards them. She marries her boss, a man she doesn't love, has a child with him and then an affair with a younger man. Revitalized by this experience, her moral conflict grows until she retaliates against her husband, killing him. She undergoes a trial and is ultimately sentenced to death by electrocution for the murder.
