Programme Note #1: Little Women

FM wrote: “Little Women by Louisa Alcott must surely be one of the best loved of all books.

If the March family seem, to modern eyes, too good to be true at times, is it not nice to see young people with a greater care for others than themselves.

I have greatly enjoyed directing this lovely play, especially in having four such talented teenagers in the parts of Jo, Amy, Beth and Laurie – today’s young people portraying those of a bygone era. Let us hope we may see more of them in future productions.”
