Pittsfield Players to present one-act ‘Trifles’

Published: 3/2/2020 9:20:40 AM

The Pittsfield Players will stage the one-act play, Trifles, written by Susan Glaspell, which was first performed in 1916 in Providence, Mass. Directed by Meggin Dail and sponsored by The Iron Dragon Corporation, Trifles promises to surprise you with a bit of mystery and give you a little something to think about.

The play begins as the men, followed by the women, enter the Wrights’ empty farmhouse. On command from the county attorney, Mr. Hale recounts his visit to the house the previous day, when he found Mrs. Wright behaving strangely and her husband upstairs with a rope around his neck, dead.

Jeannie LeGrow, recently “seen” as the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come in Scrooge The Musical, plays Mrs. Hale, Farmer Hale’s wife and next-door neighbor. Coy McCarty, recently seen as Bob Cratchitt in Scrooge and Billy Bibbit in Cuckoo’s Nest, plays Mr. Hale. Mrs. Peters, the Sheriff’s wife is played by Tyler Fish who is a wonderful new addition to the Pittsfield Players family and Sheriff Peters by Kiefer Archambault, also of Cuckoo’s Nest fame as Mr. Scanlon. Jeff Gregoire, experienced vet of the Pittsfield Players with too many talents to count plays the County Attorney.

The cast does a fantastic job of bringing this small-town murder mystery to life in Trifles at the Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot St., Pittsfield, on Feb. 28 and 29 and March 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m. and March 1 at 2 p.m.

The play is suitable for all ages and is not more than one hour in length. Tickets are available for $12 at the door, by making reservations calling 35-8852 or via the TicketLeap link on The Pittsfield Players web page pittsfieldplayers.com.
