2022 / 2023 SEASON
MACHINAL BY SOPHIE TREADWELL
“Your skin oughtn’t to curl - ought it - when he just comes near you- ought it? That’s wrong, ain’t it? You don’t get over that, do you - ever, do you or do you?” The city. A woman is restless. A woman is suffocating. A woman is silenced. The woman revolts.
Inspired by the infamous 1927 Snyder/Gray murder trial, this rarely-performed masterpiece portrays the hardened soul of America in the Machine Age. Machinal follows the life of Young Woman who is constrained by a society that favors men and money.
THE LITTLE FOXES BY LILLIAN HELLMAN
Iconic playwright Lillian Hellman's searing tale of family betrayal and corruption ignites the stage in this explosive revival. Ben and Oscar Hubbard stand to earn millions funding an industrialized cotton mill, if they can get their sister Regina’s husband to help finance their scheme. His refusal sets off a violent series of betrayals, which shatters the Hubbard clan’s genteel façade and lays bare their ruthless pursuit of wealth.
