How do you escape the machine?
One young woman must break out in this exhilarating reimagining of MACHINAL, the American classic play, inspired by the sensational, true story of murderess Ruth Snyder, set in the increasingly mechanized world of New York City, 1928.
Trapped in an unhappy marriage, the young woman finds a thrill in the arms of a flyby lover. But when reality returns, how far will her fight for freedom take her? And who will pay the ultimate price?
