The famous novel will come to life for the first time on the stage of the SND Drama Company. Four sisters live their day-to-day lives while their father is fighting. They are fortunate to be brought up and guided by, at the time, a very open-minded, free-spirited mother. She inspires her daughters to be curious, observes their awakening femininity, encourages social empathy and cultivates their relationships with each other. Girls of different temperaments and talents discover their individualities and the limits of social conventions and expectations. Their childhood, adolescence and adulthood have unique romantic charm, secrets and first sorrows and disappointments. In his dramatisation, the director Amsler brings the iconic work to life with a modern aesthetic and imagery. By producing this title, we intend to make a non-violent appeal to ethical values such as decency, empathy, friendship, humility and strong family ties. The secrets of the sympathetic heroines and heroes and the overflowing chaos of the first touch of love are equally important ingredients of Little Women. In an uncertain and rapidly changing world, it seems fitting to be reminded of the values and beauty of life, even if it is not always an idyll.
