THIS PROPERTY IS CONDEMNED, by Tennessee Williams, is one of his most acclaimed one-act dramas. Written in 1946, it is possibly a study for Blanche in his major play A Streetcar Named Desire, which premiered in 1947. Williams, one of the first openly gay American playwrights, won two Pulitzer Prizes for Drama for Streetcar and for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. 

TRIFLES is a suspenseful drama set on a remote farm in the Midwest, was written by Susan Glaspell in 1916, and is considered a masterpiece of the 20th century. Glaspell, a major female playwright, was a co-founder of Provincetown Players and winner of the 1931 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for her play Alison's House.
