About the SGPF
Susan Glaspell was born in Davenport, Iowa in 1876. She was a journalist, author, actor and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. She founded the Provincetown Players, one of the first great American theatres, which launched the careers of such luminaries as Eugene O'Neil, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Theodore Dreiser. In her works, Glaspell often challenged gender roles and featured strong, well-written female characters that drove the action of the play – a rarity in her own time as much as it is now. Due to the immense contributions she made to the American theatre tradition during her lifetime, she has often been called "The First Lady of American Drama."
