It is Christmas Eve and the March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, are struggling to be grateful for what they have. Longing for their father, who is serving in the war, and worried about their mother, who never ceases to share what little she has with others, they vow to be the best Little Women they can.

This play follows their journey from bickering girls to loving sisters as Christmas Eve gives way to Christmas Day and the merry revels they create to entertain themselves.
