Trifles

Modern Theatre

One aspect of the play which makes it unique is that the main "players" in the murder, Minnie (the murderer) and John Wright (the murdered), are never seen on stage. Their lives and personalities are fleshed out in the dialogue of other characters. The small cast and understated scenery both serve to turn the audience to the inward lives of the characters.
