Darien Library is proud to present for the third time Weekend One-Acts, a theatrical weekend featuring free performances of one-act plays from two esteemed playwrights. 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. 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).
