Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott and loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a universal coming-of-age story. The girls navigate what it means to be a young woman, from sibling rivalry and first love to loss and marriage. This adaptation for WGBH’s Masterpiece is from Heidi Thomas, the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife, Cranford and the latter-day Upstairs Downstairs.
