The play follows the lives of the four March girls: romantic Meg, shy and musical Beth, willful and artistic Amy, and, of course, passionate and fiery Jo, and their journey to adulthood, set against the backdrop of the American Civil War. These four young daughters of a Union army chaplain find their lives touched by love and loss, as they struggle to help their kind-hearted mother make ends meet. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad, as they share the joys and pains of growing up.
Little Women was first published on September 30th, 1868, and was based on the author’s own experiences as a child in Concord, Massachusetts, with her sisters. The version of the story, in this production, incorporates many of the real life historical characters, that peopled Alcott’s childhood and helped to shape the events and perspectives of her novel.
