The Sound Company’s Machinal runs May 18 – 28, 2023 at MadLab Theatre in downtown Columbus.
This ensemble-devised show will use Treadwell’s shocking and surreal text to create a multidisciplinary experience that includes music, dance, and multimedia components. Sophie Treadwell’s expressionist play tells the story of a young woman, any woman—a woman who suffocates in a society that wants her to be submissive.
When it premiered in 1928, the New York Times said “in a hundred years it should still be vital and vivid.” As we near the 100th anniversary, The Sound Company is using this play as a catalyst to a community conversation about the global backlash against women’s rights.
