Synopsis

Louisa May Alcott’s chronicle about the March family in Civil War New England. Four sisters: pretty Meg, practical Jo, shy Beth, and vain little Amy, live with their mother and housekeeper while their father is away in the war. Jo is an avid writer who aspires to be a famous author someday and live an independent life. Meg looks towards a more traditional future as a wife with children. Sweet Beth is content to stay at home and play the piano. Amy wants the attention of her elder sisters and is quite mischievous when she is not included. All four girls are very different, yet they remain a close-knit family.

[Chamberlain’s Little Women] is a character melodrama, a play about good people discovering themselves, enduring hardships and even death, yet always strengthened by the security of family.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
