In the story of Little Women, Jo March is a woman living ahead of her time - with dreams that take her outside of what is expected. What happens to personal dreams in the face of political and personal upheaval? What impact do social and familial roles have on those dreams? With engaging writing and drama-based activities, workshop participants will explore these questions and the character of Jo March as we connect the Civil War-era story of Little Women to today's world.
