Publisher's Summary

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.

Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded at The Invisible Studios, Los Angeles, in 2011.
