Parts are assigned at the start of each session. Everyone gets a chance to read if they wish. If you do not want to read, there are some listening places available in each group. It is a great way to spend an hour and really brings the text to life.
This month’s play: Trifles by Susan Glaspell
Farmer John Wright has been murdered. While he was asleep in the middle of the night, someone strung a rope around his neck. Shockingly, that someone might have been his wife, the quiet and forlorn Minnie Wright.
Playwright Susan Glaspell’s one-act play, written in 1916, is loosely based on true events. As a young reporter, Glaspell covered a murder case in a small town in Iowa. Years later, she crafted this short play, inspired by her experiences and observations.
