Dallas Theater Center presents Little Women
In Little Women, written by Kate Hamill and based on the beloved novel by Louisa May Alcott, Jo March doesn't want to be like other girls; in fact, she's not even sure that she wants to be a girl. Jo is ambitious, rough around the edges, headstrong and yearns for a future she can’t yet articulate. As the nation is torn apart by civil war, Jo and her sisters’ struggle with what it means to grow up.
Gender roles, political beliefs, poverty and even love itself threaten to break family ties, as the March sisters try to reconcile their identities with society’s demands. How do you stay true to yourself when the world wants you to become a perfect little woman?
