Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Theatre presents Sophie Treadwell's MACHINAL, directed by Bryn Boice, October 9-12. Treadwell was a campaigning journalist in America between the wars. Among her assignments was the sensational murder involving Ruth Snyder, who with her lover, Judd Gray, had murdered her husband and gone to the electric chair. Out of this came Machinal, a powerful expressionist drama about the dependent status of women and the living hell of a loveless marriage. FREE Admission.
