Emma Reeves adapts the original Louisa May Alcott book of the March sisters' heart warming adventures, Little Women

Set in New England during the 1860s, romantic Meg, fiery Jo, shy Beth and wilful Amy, the sisters grow up in genteel poverty against the backdrop of the American Civil War. With their father away at war, the four girls must become “little women”. Tomboy Jo would rather be fighting alongside her father - but they’re all facing their own battles. Meg is torn between her rich friends and a penniless tutor. Laurie, the handsome boy next door, wants Jo to love him, Amy wants Laurie to notice her, and Beth just wishes they could all stay together forever. In the second half of the play, the girls are parted as Meg marries, Amy travels to Europe and Jo moves to New York in search of fame and fortune. Unrequited love causes heartache, and a tragedy strikes the family – will the “Little Women” ever be reunited? Following two sell-out London seasons, this production has been specially redesigned for the Lilian Baylis Theatre at Sadler's Wells
