“Trifles” is a one-act play by Susan Glaspell first performed in 1916. Written during the first wave feminist movement, the play contrasts how women act in public and in private, as well as how they perform in front of other women versus how they perform in front of men. The play is loosely based on the murder of John Hossack, which Glaspell reported on while working as a journalist for the Des Moines Daily News.
Featured in this play are Kevin Helmer, Skip Lewis, LaChanda Maxie, Elaine Lambright, and Lee Broadwater.
