Jo & Louisa
by Austin Shakespeare

Jan. 12

Famed Novelist Louisa May Alcott’s most rambunctious character, the beloved Jo March of Little Women, flouts convention and foils her author. The new play about literary ghosts and gender won 2019 Dallas/Fort Worth Critics Forum: Best New Play. This imaginative battle of the sexes is based on the life of Alcott revealing an astonishingly new point of view. In a high-stakes parlay about dresses, gender, and marriages to stodgy professors, the story shows what happens when “JO” confronts her god and asking for a rewrite!

Isabella Russell-Ides' new play about the creator of Little Women and her most famous character, Jo & Louisa, will debut in Austin for a staged reading from Austin Shakespeare. Actors: Sarah Holden-Stuart & Taylor Flanagan Director: Nancy Eyermann. 


Recommended for ages 12 and up.
