Overview

Plays written and preformed by the Alcott sisters, collected for publication by Anna Alcott Pratt after the death of her sister, Louisa May Alcott. The Alcott sisters' dramatics were featured in Alcott's most popular novel, "Little Women." This book publishes the plays as those of the "Little Women" characters, though they were actually written and performed by the real-life Alcott sisters. The plays are in the same stylistic vein as Alcott's sensational thrillers, written for the popular press. Fun read for Alcott fans.

Meet the Author

Louisa May Alcott was an American novelist best known as author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau.
Nevertheless, her family suffered severe financial difficulties and Alcott worked to help support the family from an early age. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard and under it wrote novels for young adults.
Published in 1868, Little Women is set in the Alcott family home, Orchard House, in Concord, Massachusetts and is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The novel was very well received and is still a popular children's novel today, filmed several times. Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist and remained unmarried throughout her life. She died in Boston on March 6, 1888. Henry James called her "The novelist of children... the Thackeray, the Trollope, of the nursery and the schoolroom."
