Poet and author, abolitionist and nurse, patriot and suffragist, Louisa May Alcott was so much more than the author of "Little Women." In an hour-long encounter with this prolific American author, you will learn of the hopes, the heartbreaks and the experiences of her life from which she drew inspiration for her novels, short stories and poems.
Drawing from Alcott's letters and journals, Debra Ann Miller allows Louisa to speak to us in her own words.
Miller weaves the words and lives of the historical figures she portrays into performances that delight and educate. Exquisite, historically informed costumes, scripts and talent give voice to historical women of letters.
After the performance, Miller will take questions from the audience.
