Since it's first production in 1916 Trifles has become one of the most anthologized works in American theater history and is frequently cited as one of the great masterpieces of American theater. And It is now rightfully considered a masterpiece of the early feminist movement.
Later in her career, Glaspell also retold this play as the short story A Jury of her Peers.
This is a wonderful play that was once widely known. It shouldn't linger as a hidden gem, and I encourage you to read this play and then share it with your friends.
