Trifles

Home   /   Trifles

by Susan Glaspell

This one-act play had its first production in 1916, with the Provincetown Players, the company Glaspell founded with her husband, George Cram Cook. Glaspell got her inspiration for the play from a murder case in her home state of Iowa, in which a woman was arrested for the murder of her husband. In “Trifles,” two women are able to recognize many more clues in the case than the men in charge because they understand women’s lives in a way the men can’t and frankly don’t care to.
