View this free, entertaining online event as professional performers and theatre enthusiasts from Shadowpath Theatre join forces as they read a short script by an influential female playwright who pioneered new techniques in playwrighting and reshaped the future of theatre.
The play will be Trifles, by Susan Glaspell. Glaspell was an American playwright, short story writer, novelist and journalist whose play, Alison’s House was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1931. Trifles (1916) was based on the murder trial she had covered while working as a reporter. The main character of the work, Minnie, is never seen on stage, only referenced and alluded to. This was a new theatre technique developed by Glaspell and an early example of her knack for experimentation. It also represented her determination to place women at the centre of the action of controversial, political dramas.
