Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm

Rebecca, a bright, outspoken young girl, leaves her farmland home to live with her two elderly aunts in the town of Riverboro, Maine. On the farm, Rebecca didn’t have to worry about conventional rules placed upon a young girl growing up during the turn of the century. However, when Rebecca moves to the city, her independent nature is tested. Once she starts exploring the town of Riverboro, tongues start wagging. Rebecca’s Aunt Miranda is unamused when she finds out that Rebecca has spoken out of turn in class, sold soap door-to-door, and ruined the gingham dress made especially for her. This original adaptation focuses on the conflict between the strong-willed personalities of Rebecca and her Aunt Miranda, and Rebecca’s struggle to please her elderly aunt while trying to find her own place in the world.
