In October it’s Machinal by Sophie Treadwell. “Your skin oughtn’t to curl – ought it – when he just comes near you- ought it? That’s wrong, ain’t it? You don’t get over that, do you – ever, do you or do you?” The city. A woman is restless. A woman is suffocating. A woman is silenced. The woman revolts.

Inspired by the infamous 1927 Snyder/Gray murder trial, this rarely-performed masterpiece portrays the hardened soul of America in the Machine Age. Machinal follows the life of Young Woman who is constrained by a society that favors men and money.

In December comes the TBD holiday show. Next up in February, “ The Little Foxes,” iconic playwright Lillian Hellman’s searing tale of family betrayal and corruption, ignites the stage in this revival.

Ben and Oscar Hubbard stand to earn millions funding an industrialized cotton mill, if they can get their sister Regina’s husband to help finance their scheme. His refusal sets off a violent series of betrayals, which shatters the Hubbard clan’s genteel façade and lays bare their ruthless pursuit of wealth.

Ferocious, funny and enduringly relevant, “The Little Foxes” is an absorbing chronicle of the dark side of the American Dream, a woman’s place in it and wealth’s corrupting power. This version also shows how women contend with male aggression, power, and domination.

Next up in March, the annual PlayWorks Festival of new play readings. Each reading will be followed by a talk back between playwright and audience.

The season finale in April will feature a world premiere of a new play, TBD.

The HTW also offers classes in acting, playwriting and improv for beginners, students and professionals alike.

At all performances, all audience members must wear masks and show proof of vaccination.

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community, genuinely hungry for challenging performances. They choose material that is aesthetically diverse and rooted in authenticity. From highly theatrical world premieres to distilled re-imaginings of modern classics, they put the work first and embrace risk.

Ticket prices are low and HTW is committed to making theatre affordable to all. It’s a conscious decision, not spur of the moment. Broadway ticket prices are unaffordable for far too many people. HTW is built on the idea of community and shared conversation. Attending a play sparks ideas, examines the experience of our common humanity. In these difficult times, who doesn’t need to be reminded of that? So get your tickets by clicking on the link below and we’ll see you at The Works!
