Do ghosts make a house haunted, or are houses evil to begin with? Only the spooky drama, The House, knows for sure...

Finding Jo March

Finding Jo March

by Laramie Dean

You should know right away that this is not a traditional adaptation of Little Women.

A young writer dives into the world of Louisa May Alcott’s most famous novel in order to bring the story to life (with a little help from their friends). Suddenly the March sisters are back, and the writer is one of them… Jo! But as the lives and loves of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy unfold, the present constantly threatens to pull the writer back into reality where a tragedy they have yet to deal with waits.

It’s about telling someone else’s story so you can find your own.

Praise for Finding Jo March

Loriann Schmidt
Keizer Homegrown Theatre
Finding Jo March was the 2nd of 2 plays we have performed by this playwright and I can say that we are smitten with his intelligent writing, his sensitivity to our young actors and his exploration of the kinds of subjects that are on the minds of our teens. Jo March is an exemplary handling of a teen unsure of their own self and their journey towards understanding. While there is a positive outcome, Mr. Dean allows his main character to leave the play with unanswered questions and more of their journey ahead. The delightful plot device of a play-within-a-play is used adeptly by the playwright to have the audience join in Jo's self-exploration, with flashbacks into Jo's life, leaping from past (Little Women) to present - all without any confusion whatsoever. The leaps are clear and understood, yet still surprising enough to keep interest. Our mostly queer cast fell in love with Jo and all their characters and appreciated the growth and movement in even the "old characters". Our troupe is still talking about this piece and are grateful for the opportunity to perform it.
