One of the most famous novels on stage...
Little Women is the timeless saga of four girls – Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy – growing up in genteel poverty during and after the American Civil War.
Meg, the eldest, is the family beauty; Jo the headstrong tomboy gifted with literary talent and a sharp tongue. Beth is kindly, anxious – and sadly stricken with Scarlet Fever. The youngest, Amy, is a proper little lady – socially adept and secure in knowing what she wants.
The heart of the family is ‘Marmee’, the girls’ mother. She guides her daughters as they find their (sometimes difficult) way from older childhood to the glories of becoming young women.
And the men in their lives. Father, shaken by his experiences of the war; upright John, who loves Meg; and young Laurie, who loves Jo – but can she return his feelings?
Southside is proud to present this new play, adapted from Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, loved and read all over the world.
This production is directed by Liz Steer.
We are also delighted to be partnering with Streatham Space Project for the first time.
