About The Event
Protagonist Mackenzie sells her soul to the devil as a protection from a traumatic incident that happened in her life. When she signed the contract to sell her soul, the devil wiped her memory clean and gave her an alter ego to start a new life inside his protected world. It's been a few years since Mackenzie signed the contract and she is now bored. Longing for adventure outside her bubble-wrapped world, she does what no one has done before: she goes back to the Devil and breaks her contract.
'The Devil Made Me Do It' is a reflection of women's lack of rights in the 1950s, but specifically for actresses in the motion picture industry. As Mackenzie unlocks her soul and retrieves her memories, the audience experiences in real time the true horrors that Mackenzie and many other actresses and women of her time had to face.
