Imagine that you are stuck in an unsatisfying job, a loveless marriage, and with an unwanted child. If you were presented with an option to escape, would you? Inspired by the true story of Ruth Snyder, we invite you to bear witness to the nine episodes of Sophie Treadwell’s claustrophobic Machinal. Watch as a young woman desperately tries to escape the stifling life that has been forced upon her.
