Choose one of these two questions: If a twenty-first-century playwright were to write an updated version of Trifles, what details of plot, character, and [or] setting would be different? What would be the same? What are some possible “trifles” that might serve the same dramatic functions as those in Glaspell’s play? OR In what way does Fences make use of dramatic or situational irony? By the end of the play, what statements in earlier acts might seem like instances of verbal irony?
