A Co-Production of Perseverance Theatre and UAA Department of Theatre and Dance

Little Women
by Kate Hamill
based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
Directed by Cara Hinh

Jo longs to be a writer and travel the world. Meg hopes to marry a respectable man and start a family. Amy wishes she could hurry and grow up already. And Beth just wants everyone to be happy. In this fresh take on a classic coming of age story, the beloved March sisters grow up against the backdrop of the Civil War. Accompanied by the rich boy next door, the temperamental aunt, the stuffy tutor, the devoted mother, and a surprising amount of fake mustaches, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth navigate their way through poverty, loss, and society’s expectations. Named Playwright of the Year by the Wall Street Journal in 2017, Kate Hamill expertly adapts a heartwarming and empowering tale of young women finding their way in the world.

The runtime of the show is approximately 2 hours with one intermission.

Video on Demand available April 14-30, 2023
