Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves
Production dates, 8 – 18 August, Gryphon Theatre, 22 Ghuznee Street

Emma Reeves adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, Little Women, Premiered at London’s West End Duchess Theatre in September 2004 and unlike all previous adaptations it includes the second novel Good Wives and has the famous March sisters in their 20’s looking back on their lives.

With her husband away in the American Civil War, Mrs March, Marmee, is left alone to bring up their four girls; romantic Meg, shy Beth, wilful Amy and of course, fiery and independent Jo. Through the intertwining lives of the sisters we see the familiar frustrations, contradictions and duties that constitute family life and love. We share in the hardships and heartbreak, humour and humility of these passionate and unique young women.

Reeves' charming adaptation, that incorporates Good Wives, sensitively illustrates the sisters' path to maturity encompassing the many reversals of fortune in their lives.

The romantic, tragic and comic elements are flawlessly captured, successfully creating an emotional journey that tugs at the heartstrings.

Alcott's novel has been adapted to the screen numerous times including in 1994 with Winona Ryder and Susan Sarandon, in 1949 with Elizabeth Taylor and Janet Leigh and in 1933 with Katharine Hepburn and Joan Bennett and Sony Pictures has just recently announced plans of yet another remake of Little Women.
