Old Vic

15 May @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

Micro Rainbow is heading out to the theatre! Come along and see the play ‘Machinal’ by Sophie Treadwell. 

Here’s what you can expect from the show in the words of the Old Vic Theatre… 

‘‘How can that be? A great sin – a mortal sin – for which I must die and go to hell – but it made me free! One moment I was free!’   

From the outside, Helen Jones and her husband had a ‘happy marriage’. Until she murdered him.   

Based on the true crime story of Ruth Snyder in 1928 that shook a nation, Sophie Treadwell’s seminal Machinal is a pulse-pounding journey of someone pushed to breaking point by the relentless machinery of life, expectation and convention.’ 

Content warnings: sexism, racism, abusive relationships, postpartum depression, murder.
