Play by Emma Reeves  

Based on the book by Louisa May Alcott 

With their father fighting in the American Civil War, sisters Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth are at home with their mother, a very outspoken woman for her time. The story tells of how the sisters grow up, find love, and find their place in the world.


Exatract from Script:

JO: Meg…  (Jo opens the chest and finds an old, broken fan inside. She tries to open it, but it is ruined. As she  does so, MEG appears in her memory, flirting with her unbroken fan.)

MEG: I should like a lovely house, full of all sorts of luxurious things – pretty clothes, handsome  furniture, pleasant people – and heaps of money.  (Jo moves to the next 

chest and takes out an old paint brush.) 

JO: Amy…  (AMY appears with the brush.)

AMY: I want to go to Rome, and do fine pictures, and be the best artist in the whole world. (Jo finds an old manuscript in the ‘Jo’ chest and reads it.)

JO: ‘I’m going to do something splendid – something heroic, and wonderful, that won’t be forgotten  after I’m gone.’  (Jo moves on to the final chest, marked ‘Beth’. She 

pulls out the doll, Joanna. Beth.) 

BETH appears with her doll.
