SPOOF/FARCE. Audiences will love this over-the-top spoof of Susan Glaspell’s play Trifles. The Sheriff and District Attorney arrive at the Wright homestead after a neighbor finds John Hale dead with a noose around his neck. Calmly rocking in her chair, Minnie Hale, confesses to the murder of her husband. But why did Minnie do it? It isn’t until a couple of womenfolk inspect Minnie’s kitchen that they find clues including an “apron,” a jar marked “poison,” an ugly quilt, a crushed birdcage, and a dead canary.
