Overview

Adapted by Peter DeLaurier

When aging brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert send to the orphanage in Nova Scotia for a boy to help them on the farm, they get more than they bargain for. Due to a mix-up, they are instead left with 11-year-old Anne Shirley. Over the course of six years, this romantic, hot-headed, and energetic girl wins their hearts and turns the stodgy, rural Canadian community into a bright world of "kindred spirits." This swift yet theatrical adaptation of the classic novel is an all-ages crowd-pleaser.

Reviews

"It is very rare to experience a piece of theater that is absolutely delightful from start to finish... Although classified as 'family drama,' Anne of Green Gables is a production that would entertain and charm a theatergoer of any age."

David Cregan, Main Line Times (Philadelphia)

"It is a theme irresistible to the young, and has enough depth in its characterizations to engage an older audience."

Anders Beck, Daily Local News (West Chester, PA)

"Plenty of novel adaptations succeed on stage, but never has one made me want to read the book like Peter DeLaurier's charming version. Can L.M. Montgomery's 99-year-old story about an orphan in 1890's rural Canada really be as delightful and rich?"

Mark Cofta, Philadelphia Citypaper
