    Not Enough Air

    Local playwright Masha Obolensky electrifies with Not Enough Air (February 11 - March 14), a “vivid” and “riveting” script, in its East Coast Premiere by The Nora Theatre Company. Drawn into the sensational 1920’s murder trial of Ruth Snyder, famed journalist-turned-playwright, Sophie Treadwell, finds herself compelled to give voice to Ruth’s story through her landmark play, Machinal.

      CAMBRIDGE - Sophie Treadwell’s 1928 play, “Machinal,’’ is a masterpiece of American Expressionism that was nearly forgotten until the 1990s. With any luck, local playwright Masha Obolensky’s finely crafted play about “Machinal’’ and Treadwell, “Not Enough Air,’’ won’t suffer the same fate

      The act of writing is seldom as romantic or dramatic as portrayed in popular media. You know the trope: a divinely inspired author sits at his typewriter with a flourish and beats out a story like a symphony.

      No, the act of creation is a lot messier and uglier than that. In Masha Obolensky’s “Not Enough Air,” the writing process is portrayed in all its grotesque, compulsive fervor. It’s based on a true story, but Obolensky knows that, once in your head, the shadows of real people tend to take on a life of their own.
