Award-winning comedy duo LipService return in their version of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel. Meet the March girls - Meg, the sensible one, Jo the tomboy and would-be novelist one, Beth the ill one and Amy the vain, silly one, plus, of course, Laurie the tousled haired boy next door - all played by Maggie and Sue. Very Little Women has all the makings of a three handkerchief weepie. Join the sisters as they crochet dishcloths for the poor and needy, await news of father away at the war, watch as consumptive Beth rallies from her death bed (again)! All this plus a free pull out sampler pattern in our gorgeous souvenir programme! A show as charming and mischievous as a basketful of kittens! “Pant-wettingly funny…’ll want to pack plenty of tissues and maybe a change of underwear”**** The Guardian March 2004
