Assigned with the super-boring task of writing a novel for young girls, Louisa May Alcott finds herself in a state of writer's block — that is, until she turns to figures and stories from her own life. The lines between fact and fiction begin to blur as her novel, Little Women, is played out upon the stage. Louisa's self-examination of her own sexuality, as well as unfinished family drama, weaves itself through the story in quirky, queer, and sentimental ways. Life may be the best inspiration, but what if you are afraid to learn who you are?
Part adaptation, part biography...but definitely NOT your Marmee's Little Women!
