Named one of the most produced playwrights by the American Theatre Wing for the fifth year in a row, Kate Hamill has made a name for herself across the nation for her feminist, female-centered adaptations of classic novels. In Kate Hamill’s Little Women, you get all the touchstones of the original novel, while adapting it for a 21st century audience, as Jo March and the rest of the March sisters grow up during the Civil War and strive to be brave, intelligent, and imaginative young women. “An ingenious compassion of Alcott’s novel that is by turns funny and painfully poignant; it touched me to the heart.” (The Wall Street Journal)

Little Women runtime is 2 hours and 15 minutes including intermission.
