Two Plays by Susan Glaspell: Trifles & Suppressed Desires

Event Location: Dover Theater, Boiling Springs, NC, 28017, United States Event Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

This event has passed.

About the Play

Trifles is one-act play that covers the aftermath of the murder-by-strangulation of a farmer in a small Midwestern town in the early 20th Century. The story provides an insightful social commentary on the state of women under patriarchy.

Suppressed Desires comically satirizes the then-current obsession with dream interpretation: Henrietta’s obsession with psychoanalysis leads to a completely off-the-wall interpretation of a dream and very nearly to divorce before the absurdity of the situation is realized.
