The program of two works includes two "mysterious" one-act plays: one from 1962 (Agatha Christie), and one from 1916 (Susan Glaspell). "The Rats" by Agatha Christie Directed by Bridget Cusack "The Rats" by Agatha Christie is a one-act play involving David and his lover Sandra. They arrive at a flat for a party and are surprised to find there is no party. Their friend Alec arrives and shows them a Kurdish knife. After handling it, Alec drops it out of the window, leaves and locks them in the flat. A murder mystery ensues. "Trifles" by Susan Glaspell Directed by Donna McLaughlin Wyant Someone has strangled Farmer John Wright in the middle of the night and that someone may have been his wife, the quiet and forlorn Minnie Wright. Doors open 1/2 hour prior to performance time. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-serve basis. We cannot accommodate reservations. Latecomers cannot be admitted. This program is free and open to the public. Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs available on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).
