October 25 – November 10
Josephine Louis Theater

A young working woman following the rituals that society expects of her is left feeling unfulfilled and resistant. Looking for a way out from society and her sordid marriage, the young woman begins to find her freedom, but with life changing consequences. Inspired by the real-life case of convicted and executed murderer Ruth Snyder, this 1928 play is considered one of the highpoints of Expressionist Theatre on the American stage and is reimagined for a 21st century audience in an electrifying new staging.

Estimated Running Time: TBD
