UW-Oshkosh Theatre: Trifles
October 6, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - October 9, 2016 @ 2:00 pm$5 – $14
Farmer John Wright has been murdered and his quiet and forlorn wife, Minnie Wright, has been arrested. Loosely based on true events, Susan Glaspell’s 1916 Trifles depicts the process by which two women discover evidence—previously undetected by male investigators—that could link Minnie to the crime. In Grammy-nominated Milbre Burch’s 2012 Sometimes I Sing, an addendum to Trifles, Burch performs her original monodrama, told in Minnie’s voice, about her life with John Wright and her experience of domestic violence. This production of both plays celebrates the centennial anniversary of Trifles.
