A Christmas Carol

(by Charles Dickens)
Directed by Deborah Hanna

It is a play about a cold-hearted miser, Ebeneezer Scrooge, who is visited by the ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley. During the night, three future spirits also appear to Scrooge, each holding a mirror to his behavior and highlighting the unhappiness resulting from his actions.

Trifles
(One-act by Susan Glaspell)
Directed by Ashley Zeh-Perez

Trifles was first performed by the Provincetown Players at the Wharf Theatre in Provincetown, Massachusetts, on August 8, 1916. In the original performance, Glaspell played the role of Mrs. Hale. The play is frequently anthologized in American literature textbooks. Written at the same time as the first wave of feminism, the play contrasts how women act in public and in private as well as how they perform in front of other women versus how they perform in front of men.
