Trifles One-Acts 20

By: Odin Webster
Cast: 3 M, 2 F
Performance Time: Approximately 30 minutes, 26 pgs.


CLASSIC/MYSTERY. Adapted from the play by Susan Glaspell. In this captivating mystery, the murderer and victim are never seen. Instead, their lives unfold through clues left behind in a farmhouse kitchen. John Wright has been murdered, and his wife, Minnie, has been taken into custody. While the Sheriff and County Attorney search the Wright’s property for evidence, a neighbor woman and the Sheriff’s wife discover important clues in the kitchen that the Sheriff and County Attorney have disregarded as “trifles.” The women must decide whether to hide the evidence or reveal the truth about John Wright’s death.
