Tier5's meg jo beth amy & louisa
About meg jo beth amy & louisa
Assigned with the super boring task of writing a novel for young girls, Louisa May Alcott finds herself in a state of writer’s block. That is until she turns to figures and stories from her own life. The lines between fact and fiction begin to blur, as her novel, Little Women, is played out upon the stage. Louisa’s self-examination of her own sexuality, as well as unfinished family drama, weaves itself through the story in quirky, queer, and sentimental ways. Life may be the best inspiration, but what if you are afraid to learn who you are?
meg jo beth amy & louisa is Tier5’s second play and premiered in a workshop production at Dixon Place in New York City, on November 1, 2018. This production is part of The Center at West Park’s Theater Artist Residency Program.
Tier5 was founded by graduate students from London’s East 15 Acting School in 2015. The collective’s first project, Ladies in Waiting: The Judgement of Henry VIII, had sold-out and critically-acclaimed runs at the Edinburgh, Hollywood, and Washington D.C. fringe festivals, and with the Southwest Shakespeare Company in Scottsdale, AZ. The production won the 2017 Hollywood Fringe International Award and the 2017 TVolution Award for Best Ensemble.
The Center at West Park’s Balcony Theater is located on the second floor of the historic West Park Presbyterian Church. We regret that there is no elevator to the Balcony Theater and it is accessible only by stairs.
