A famous one-play act, Trifle is a story of a mysterious murder, loosely based on the real-life case of John Hossack. The act was first played by Provincetown Players on August 8, 1916. In the original performance Glaspell played the role of Mrs. Hale.

An early example of feminist drama, the two female leads show sympathy to the victim's wife, Minnie. In contrast, the men was shown to be cold and indifferent.

The act was frequently anthologized and cited as one of the greatest work of America drama.
