Gaspingly intense... American journalist Sophie Treadwell's 1928 work Machinal remains pretty extraordinary stuff... her spare, percussive language frequently feels like it could have been written yesterday. --Time Out
Impressive, powerfully disconcerting... almost visionary in its intensity. --Independent
Sophie Treadwell's radical drama about a woman trapped in the hostile environment of a patriarchal society is a dazzling piece of work... Machinal, written in 1928, has lost none of its cold fury, its expressionistic power to depict a woman trapped by a society that expects her to marry and conform. It is astonishingly modern. --WhatsOnStage
A fascinating piece, a formally bold and explicitly feminist study of an ordinary woman who snaps under societal pressure... It's a play of the jazz age, a lightening bolt, a roar. --The Stage
