Here’s our first look at the forthcoming BBC/PBS adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women.
The drama, which is due to air later this year, has been adapted by Call The Midwife creator Heidi Thomas.
The story follows the four March sisters: Jo, played by newcomer Maya Hawke, Meg, played by Willa Fitzgerald, Beth, played by Annes Elwy and Amy, played by Kathryn Newton, on their journey from childhood to adulthood.
With the help of their mother Marmee, while their father is away at war, and accompanied by the boy next door Laurie Laurence (Jonah Hauer-King), the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from gender roles to sibling rivalry, first love, loss and marriage.
Angela Lansbury plays the cantankerous Aunt March and Michael Gambon takes on the role of their benevolent neighbour Mr Laurence.
