Machinal

“Your skin oughtn't to curl - ought it - when he just comes near you- ought it? That's wrong, ain't it? You don't get over that, do you - ever, do you or do you?”

The city. A woman is restless. A woman is suffocating. A woman is silenced.

The woman revolts.

Natalie Abrahami directs a visceral production of Sophie Treadwell’s expressionist masterpiece.

Our Machinal Review

Machinal only runs for 90 minutes, but you feel the uneasy churn of every single one, as it moves inexorably towards its grim climax. An acute portrait of a lonely woman who works in a typing pool and her fateful marriage to her boss, it unfolds in nine 'episodes' that offer an impressionistic - and impressively staged - series of vignettes from her life.
