“Your skin oughtn't to curl—ought it—when he just comes near you—ought it?

Sophie Treadwell’s vivid expressionist masterpiece, inspired by a true story, is a treasure of the American theatre that offers a riveting look at the danger that can come from a life unlived.

Against the machine, a young woman is restless, is silenced, then revolts.

Carissa Licciardello (Opening Night) creates an adrenaline-charged portrait of a young woman, constrained by a society that favours men and money, who goes to surprising lengths to find agency in her life.
