Kristin Laurence’s frequently performed adaptation of the novel Little Women features an eight-member all female cast and takes us through a portion of Alcott’s novel from the introduction of the March sisters to the return of their father from the war as Beth’s health begins to fail her. We see them learn to become independent, work their way through the perils of navigating society as young women, and most importantly, take care of one another through multiple joys and sorrows. Above all else, we learn to appreciate Jo’s sentiments expressed in the novel - “I could never love anyone as I love my sisters”.
It is often said that Little Women is a timeless story. But many people use the word “timeless” without thinking of the meaning of the word. Only when we take away the specific period dress and the name of the war, are we able to see how history repeats itself time and time again. In this production, Director Lara Maerz shares a unique modern rendition of Little Women. By being more flexible with the exact location and time in history, Lara hopes the audience will fall into this timeless story and join the actors on stage in their journey.
