Written by Susan Glaspell in 1916, Trifles is a one-act play about a woman accused of strangling her husband. Based on an actual murder case reported by Glaspell for the Des Moines News, the play represented an early exploration of gender relationships in a time when women often were considered to be mere trifles. A groundbreaking feminist play, Trifles is often included in anthologies of drama and literature. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Jeanie Hackett as Mrs. Peters; Amy Madigan as Mrs. Hale; Sam McMurray as the Sheriff; Steven Vinovich as Mr. Hale; Steven Weber as the County Attorney.

This play is short and sweet but full of meaning and depth. The women in the story are ignored for being the 'lesser gender,' but they are the only ones who can interpret the evidence that proves one of their neighbors committed a crime. Feminist or not, you should read this play.
