Kimberly High School Theatre is proud to present the American Expressionist drama, Machinal, by Sophie Treadwell. The play's title means "automatic" or "mechanical" in French. Treadwell wrote the play based loosely on the murder trial of Ruth Snyder and her lover, Judd Gray, who together murdered Snyder's husband. Convicted of murdering her husband, Snyder later received the electric chair. Out of this event came the powerful, demanding drama, Machinal. This play is a powerful drama about women's forced financial dependency upon men during the 1920s and their trapped existence in a male-dominated, oppressive wasteland.
