LITTLE WOMEN One actress. One musician. One enchanting new adaptation.“ March 30th 2023 – Beccles Public Hall - I want to do something splendid, something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead.”

Cheltenham-based Jenny Wren Productions embark on their first national tour with a new take on the Louisa May Alcott classic, Little Women.  First premiered at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham, the show retains all the charm and spirit of the original novel – with a twist. The four sisters, their family and friends are all played by just one woman, actress Hannah Churchill.

Holed up in the attic of her Massachusetts home just after the American Civil War, Jo struggles with writer’s block, until the arrival of an old friend helps her to unlock a lifetime of memories. Laugh and cry with Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy in this coming-of-age tale packed with adventure, drama, love and loss.

This original play also features live music performed by actor/musician, Reece Webster.

Jenny Wren founder and director, Jenny Wicks said: “The original idea came about during lockdown. Hannah has been in a number of my shows and we both needed a creative project to keep us going. 

 Little Women was on my ‘list of shows I want to do at some point’. I started considering how it could work with one performer and Hannah rose to the challenge.”

Jenny and Hannah met originally over Zoom calls during lockdown to create the play and then later rehearsed in person, together with Reece, ahead of the show’s premiere at the Everyman Theatre in June 2021. 

Jenny said: “It was a huge passion project for us all and having received such excellent feedback after The Everyman Theatre performances, we wanted the show to have a longer life.  

I am delighted to be embarking on a national tour. It’s such an uplifting tale, with laughter, as well as pathos and we are excited to share it with audiences around the country.”

Jenny Wren Productions have had rave reviews for their previous touring shows including The Hound of the Baskervilles, Emma and Burke and Hare.
