  Commedia Delight!

Commedia by Claudia Haas and Richard Cash

63 pages

5 m, 10 w, 15 flexible, 1 optional


Welcome to Delight, Italy! The once happy village is now a sad town ruled by the not-so-very-nice Signora Notsobene Pantalone. The townspeople are frightened of her, while her spirited daughter, Piccola, feels smothered by her mother's rules. Then a ragtag troupe of traveling actors turns everything upside down. Led by a woman who looks surprisingly like the signora, and with other characters assuming disguises, there's lots of comedic confusion. And it might just lead the citizens of Delight back to their heritage of fun. Winner of the Columbia Entertainment...

  Louisa's Little Women

Classic by Beth Lynch and Scott Lynch-Giddings

75 pages

6-12 m; 9 w; 6 or more women as extras


By itself, the sweetness and wholesomeness of "Little Women," the story of a tomboy and her three sisters coming of age during the Civil War, might be a little too saccharine for a cynical modern audience. But this warm, intelligent play is grounded by scenes from Alcott's real life, as a daughter of an abolitionist father, as a published author in a male-dominated business world, as a volunteer nurse during the war, and as a suffragette. Woven into her novel, we see just how radical these independent girls were for their time.
