Published in 1868, Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women was an immediate critical and commercial success and is now one of the best loved novels of all time. By turns comic, dramatic, romantic, and tragic, the book was inspired by Alcott’s experiences growing up with her three sisters, and is the story of the March family: mother Marmee and her daughters, beautiful Meg, tomboy Jo, sensitive Beth, and spoilt Amy, as they struggle to survive in New England during the American Civil War.
Anne-Marie Casey’s adaptation of the classic story offers an exciting theatrical experience guaranteed to be a night (or afternoon!) filled with laughter, tears, and a lifting of the spirits.
This hit show is directed by Brigid Larmour, whose ‘bold and moving’ (WhatsOnStage) The Merchant of Venice 1936 was a sell-out smash hit at HOME, and returns to the venue in December.
Original co-production at Pilochry Festival Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre
