Sophie Treadwell’s 1928 expressionist drama, inspired by the real-life case of accused criminal Ruth Snyder, tells the story of Young Woman who works as a stenographer in an industrial, male-dominated world. Societal, economic and domestic pressures seem to control her life. She must decide if she will accept her routine existence. Will she ever find human connection? To what lengths will she go to gain her freedom?
