Upper School Drama Club Fall Play 2013
The Upper School Drama Club presented Scott Davidson's theatrical adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel. We looked back at the warm and loving sorority of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March. Our retelling of Little Women began in memory and reflection, looking into a past and bringing it to life before our eyes. As Jo looked back to tell her story, she came to know it better and more truly. Through active reflection on her own experiences of joy and grief, of departures and homecomings, Jo realized the simple truth and beauty of her own story. Movement toward growth and maturity can be painful, but it is well worth it if toward Truth. As Paul writes, "When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known." We invited our audiences to join us, to reflect upon the truth in their own story, and to seek movement forward into full knowing, in gospel community with brothers and sisters, that we might meet Truth face to face.
