Notes from the Playwright
The task of staging Alcott's novel is a humbling
challenge. There are so many incidents and characters that one
can never have it all. Other playwrights have solved the problem
by rewriting the novel to fit the stage, and I feel that they
have lost Alcott in the process. Therefore, my effort has been
to make the staging fit the novel. I hope to save the pace,
energy, and humor which make the novel a classic and which is
the whole point of dramatizing Little Women.
