About Machinal

‘How can that be? A great sin – a mortal sin – for which I must die and go to hell – but it made me free! One moment I was free!’

From the outside, Helen Jones and her husband had a ‘happy marriage’. Until she murdered him.

Based on the true crime story of Ruth Snyder in 1928 that shook a nation, Sophie Treadwell’s seminal Machinal is a pulse-pounding journey of someone pushed to breaking point by the relentless machinery of life, expectation and convention.

Rosie Sheehy (Oleanna, Chernobyl) reprises her critically acclaimed role in Olivier Award-winning director Richard Jones’ ‘outstanding production’ (Daily Mail).

The cast of Machinal will also include: Daniel Abelson, Sam Alexander, Steven Beard, Daniel Bowerbank, Imogen Daines, Buffy Davis, Tim Frances, Carla Harrison-Hodge, Emilio Iannucci, Pierro Niel-Mee and Wendy Nottingham, with further casting to be announced.

Thought-provoking, Riveting, Clever, Quirky, Great staging

See it if You will enjoy a wild Expressionistic staging of an odd feminist drama from the 1920s.

Don’t see it if Spoiler: You don’t think a wife with a boring (but non-abusive) husband is justified in murdering him to achieve her “freedom.”
