Outdoor Theatre: Little Women

Gibside and Chapterhouse Theatre Company are proud to present Louise May Alcott's classic novel, Little Women, brought to life within Gibside's Georgian walled garden.

Little Women is the timeless story of four sisters - Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy - and their life during the Civil War in America. In a tale full of romance, love, passion and friendship, hope will always outdo heartache and hardship if you have the courage to follow your dreams. Little Women is brought to life in a brand-new adaptation from Chapterhouse, featuring glorious period costume, traditional live music and a story of self-discovery to warm your heart.
