I want to do something splendid...something heroic or wonderful that won't be forgotten after I'm dead. I don't know what, but I'm on the watch for it and mean to astonish you all someday…” Generations of readers have fallen in love with Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, Little Women. Set during the US Civil War, the story follows the March sisters – clever and fiery author Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful and traditional Meg, and romantic, spoilt Amy – as they navigate the challenges and hardships of their time. Set in an era of war, slavery, and limited opportunities for women, it remains an enduring tale of love, compassion and hope.

This new adaptation by Kirsty Budding is co-directed by Glynis Stokes and features a talented cast of children and young adults. This show has alternating casts performing in different sessions; please check the cast list in the credits tab prior to booking.
