LITTLE WOMEN — one night only!

by: Velina Hasu Houston
directed by: Jon Lawrence Rivera

Inspired by the novel Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Velina Hasu Houston’s play Little Women is a Multicultural Transposition.

Inspired by the novel Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Velina Hasu Houston’s play Little Women (A Multicultural Transposition) follows the Mayeda sisters as they move from an incarceration camp to an uncertain, changing future for Asian Americans.

Told from the perspective of Josephine Mayeda, the second oldest daughter of Marmee Chang Mayeda and Makoto Mayeda, we follow her journey from adolescent dreamer to professional writer. All the while, the family’s story is framed through the greater context of the American Dream. Houston’s take on the classic novel and its characters offers a perspective steeped in the rich history of not only America but the Los Angeles of the present and future.
