Experience the gripping drama of Sophie Treadwell’s powerful masterpiece as it makes its West End debut under the direction of five-time Olivier Award winner Richard Jones, following its acclaimed sold-out run at Theatre Royal Bath.

"Machinal" tells the chilling true story that captivated a nation—a suburban housewife pushed to the brink by the relentless machinery of her life, culminating in a cold-blooded murder that still resonates over 90 years later.

Inspired by the infamous Ruth Snyder case, which has left an indelible mark on literature, music, and film, including iconic works like 'The Postman Always Rings Twice' and Billy Wilder’s 'Double Indemnity', "Machinal" delves deep into the psyche of its protagonist, exploring the true motives behind her actions.

Don’t miss this pulse-pounding production that challenges perceptions of freedom, guilt, and the human condition. Book your tickets today and witness the electrifying tale of one woman’s desperate bid for liberation.
