Heritage Home Educators (HHE) Drama will present “Louisa’s Little Women,” a play in two acts in performances at 2 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 16, at Living Word Fellowship, 321 E. Robinson St., Knoxville.
Based on the life of Louisa May Alcott and on her American classic novel, “Little Women,” this play tells two interweaving stories: the story of the fictional March family—four teenage girls and their mother, during the American Civil War—and the story of their creator, Louisa May Alcott. The story line begins and ends with Christmas, covering both great and small events in these women’s lives from 1861 to 1862.
Under the direction of Shelley Cowden, with Necole Loftis and Natalie Ogbourne,
“Louisa’s Little Women” is a unique adaptation which places greater faith in Louisa May Alcott’s original creation, relying on her words and choices more scrupulously than its predecessors. It is also a vehicle for her words and life to come to the stage.
Tickets are $6 in advance, $1 for children 5 and younger, and can be purchased at The Coffee Connection, 213 E. Main St., Knoxville. For more information or to reserve tickets, call Lori Raymie at 641-218-8260. Tickets will also be available at the door for $6.50.
