Join us for Mysteries Yet Untold
Featuring Trifles by Susan Glaspell and Lafayette No. 1 by Mandy Conner
December 7-8, 2018 at 7:30 pm & December 9, 2018 at 2:00 pm
Join us for a pairing of two intriguing one-act plays, each investigating a mystery of sorts that has not yet been solved. In Trifles by Susan Glaspell, we take a glimpse into a gloomy kitchen, where several characters attempt to solve the strangulation of John Wright that has taken place. While the County Attorney, Sheriff Peters, and a neighboring farmer named Mr. Hale investigate the house for clues, the real sleuths turn out to be Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters. Though the menfolk continually make fun of the women for worrying out female things, like the quilt and unfinished housework, it is the ladies’ attention to “women’s work” that allows the women to discover how to crack the case. Mandy Conner’s Lafayette No. 1 transports us back to 1816, where the yellow fever epidemic has seized New Orleans. Lizzie Landry seems to be the sole person to think of the orphans known as the Forgotten, even though local police and politicians think of them as nothing more than a nuisance. When the epidemic touches Lizzie’s life, she joins with the Forgotten to fight against the lawmakers, holding them accountable for their defenseless citizens and uncovering pieces of her past along the way.
Don’t miss these two unique and significant stories!
