Presented by Loyola University Chicago Theatre

Written by Sophie Treadwell and directed by Ann Shanahan

Long regarded as one of the strongest examples of Expressionism on stage, this 1928 play is loosely based on and inspired by the real-life case of convicted and executed murder Ruth Snyder. Written by Sophie Treadwell, the play deals with feminism, victimization and mental torture exacerbated by yellow journalism.
