"Machinal," an Expressinist play written by Sophie Treadwell in 1928, will be revived by director Lee Sunday Evans.
Nicolle will be playing the role of Helen, a young woman who works in a low-status office job, marries her boss though she does not love him, has a baby, then an intoxicating affair, murders her husband, is put on trial and later sentenced to the electric chair.
The story will dissect how societal rules shape the private lives of women, rather than tell the story of one eccentric individual who can't conform to society.
March 1st to March 10th, 2018. 7:30pm at the Loewe Theatre of Hunter College. Link to buy tickets will be available soon.
