Publisher's Summary

Susan Glaspell, one of the founders of the Provincetown Players, first published this short story adaptation of her popular one-act play Trifles in 1917. Both story and play have appeared in numerous anthologies.

Inspired by events witnessed during her years as a court reporter in Iowa, Glaspell crafted a story in which two rural women deduce the details of a murder in which a housewife is accused of killing her husband. This nuanced tale revolves around the women's understanding the clues left amidst the "trifles" of the housewife's kitchen.

Performed by professional regional actor Sara Morsey.
