THEATRE

Isabella Tugman plays the lead (Young Woman/Helen Jones) in this scene from “Machinal” (Entrance at 2:45)

“Machinal” is an abstract play written by Sophie Treadwell, inspired by the real life story of Ruth Snyder, the first woman ever to be executed by electric chair for murder.

The first episode takes place within the George H. Jones Company office. A young woman (later revealed to be Helen Jones) is late for work, and her coworkers chide her, telling her she may lose her job. She is a frantic woman, crushed by society. She is often late because she cannot stand the stifling crowds of the subway. This serves as a metaphor for how she feels about society in general. In the office, it becomes apparent that George H. Jones, a kind, flabby-handed, slovenly man, has asked Helen to marry him. She does not know how to answer. Helen wants nothing more than to be free of her terrible job, but the answer is a loveless marriage to an unattractive, unappealing man.
