A Visit with Louisa May Alcott

Welcome! You will  meet Jan Turnquist, Executive Director of the historic house museum, Orchard House, in Concord, Mass, where Little Women was written in 1868.  Known as their resident Louisa May Alcott, Jan has portrayed Miss Alcott in Public Service Announcements currently running nationally on the FOX TV network, several BBC productions, including "Blue Peter," Britain's longest running children's TV show, "Book Worm" and their Open University programs, as well as on Public Television (PBS) and for First Lady, Laura Bush.

Jan's performance is a blend of stage drama and "Living History."   In a living history portrayal, an actor BECOMES a character, just as they do in a play, but, unlike a play, the audience may interact with the character and ask questions or make comments.

You DO NOT need to be an expert on Alcott's time period, which was 1832 to 1888 in order to speak to her, just be yourself.  BUT REMEMBER, SHE WILL KNOW NOTHING OF THIS CENTURY OR PLACE.  She will stay in character and only know of her time period.

 Miss Alcott will come in after having had a minor carriage accident and will be waiting for repair.  She will be most grateful for your company.

 Now, if you will, prepare to travel back in time to meet Louisa May Alcott.

This program is funded in part by the Friends of the Ventress Memorial Library
