Inspired by First Woman Sent to Electric Chair, MACHINAL to Play TheatreUSF This Fall
Inspired by the true story of the first woman ever sent to the electric chair, USF School of Theatre & Dance presents Machinal, running Sep 22- 23 & Sep 28 - 30 at 7:30 pm and Sep 24, 30, & Oct 1 at 3 pm.
A woman on the edge - wanting to break out of the box society has put her into. Stuck in a job she hates, pushed into a marriage by her mother to a man who does not understand her. What do you do when societal pressures become too much? When even an affair cannot alleviate the feeling of living a life that was made for you, and not one you made for yourself?
The first show of the TheatreUSF 2017-18 Season, Machinal is a riveting drama based on a true story of such a woman and the extremes to which she goes to be free. A drama inspired by the true story of Ruth Snyder, the first woman ever sent to the electric chair.
