About the Play

This timeless classic is based on the famous Louisa May Alcott children’s book.  Little Women is a "coming of age" drama tracing the lives of four sisters: Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.  During the American Civil War, the girls’ father is away serving as a minister to the troops. The family, headed by beloved mother, Marmee, must struggle to make ends meet, with the help of their kind and wealthy neighbor, Mr. Laurence, and his grandson Laurie. The household also includes the servant, Hannah. who has become more family than help. Cantankerous Aunt March surprises the girls; and, of course, they have romantic interests: John Brooke and Professor Bhaer.
