The Civil War has taken the March family patriarch away to serve as a Union Army chaplain and his wife is left with the impossible task of overseeing the growth of four headstrong and eclectic daughters. There’s Jo, the tomboy and aspiring writer; romantic and motherly Meg; shy and kind-hearted Beth and the spoiled and pretentious baby Amy. Through sibling rivalries, illness and tragedy, each of these women struggles to find their true selves.
The Louisa May Alcott novel that spawned the play was written over several months in serial form. It was well received by both critics and the public and has become one of the most widely read novels in American literature.
