Little Women
by Peter Clapham, adapted from the novel by Louisa May Alcottdirected by Zöe Freedman
Thursday 13th – Saturday 15th February 2020
The Carriageworks Main Space

Adapted from the classic novel, based on the writer’s own family and experiences, Little Women tells the story of the March sisters Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy: four very different young women growing up in Civil War America.

With their Father away at war, they and their ‘Marmee’ must make their own living. We see Meg fall in love, Jo battle social norms of the time, Beth become more confident through her love of music and Amy learn to be less spoiled and more considerate. Each sister has her own character traits to whom most of us can relate, as they grow to find their way in the world.
