Join us at Deerfield Academy for our production of Kate Hamill’s Little Women, a fresh and lively adaptation of the beloved novel by Louisa May Alcott. Jo March doesn’t want to be treated like other girls; in fact, she’s not even sure that she wants to be a girl. Jo is ambitious, rough around the edges, headstrong, and yearns for a future she can’t yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters Meg, Beth, and Amy struggle with what it means to grow up. Restrictive gender roles, political beliefs, poverty, and even love itself threaten to break family ties, as the March sisters try to reconcile their identities with society’s demands. How do you stay true to yourself when the world wants you to become a perfect little woman?
Little Women will be performed at 7 pm on May 23-26, and 4 pm on May 27, in the Black Box Theater.
You can reserve your ticket today.
