There’s a legend in the dark hills of western Maine where a lumber town once prospered, until the 1930s Depression turned the settlement into a ghost town. These days the old railroad bed is used by cyclists and four-wheelers, skiers and snowmobilers, but the abandoned stone bridge that watches over them isn’t always abandoned. This is the legend of The Bridge Girl.

Written by Susan Glaspell
Direction and Audio Adaptation: Leslie Pasternack
Trifles was first performed in 1916 by the Provincetown Players and remains a near-perfect example of dramatic plotting and character development. Although Susan Glaspell’s work has been overshadowed by her colleague Eugene O’Neill, she was a prolific writer of fiction and essays as well as drama, and she received the 1930 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play, Alison’s House.
A play about men, women, murder and small things – that are not.
