Debra Ann Miller portrays
                Louisa May Alcott in Noble Discontent

Poet and author, abolitionist and nurse, patriot and suffragist, Louisa May Alcott was so much more than the author of Little Women.  In this 45 minute show the audience meets with this prolific American author.  We learn of the hopes, the heartbreaks and the experiences of Louisa May Alcott's life from which she drew inspiration for her novels, short stories and poems.  This theatrical presentation, written using excerpts from her letters and journals, allows Louisa May Alcott to speak to us in her own words; of her childhood, her experiences as a Civil War nurse, her struggles to support her family and the equal rights of  all. 

This play is suitable for libraries, historical societies,
museums, book clubs, teas, special events and school assembly programs from junior high to continuing education
