A beloved classic of literature: Anne of Green Gables, the story of the little red-headed orphan who will steal into your heart, just as she did of those near her.  When the orphanage sends a girl by mistake to the Cuthbert siblings, they aren’t sure things will work out.  However, the cheerful, sincere little girl wins them over and they decide she can stay. All the tragedies and triumphs that mark Anne's growth from adolescence to early adulthood are faithfully recounted in this adaptation: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken wine bottle, the cake disaster, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and the saving of Green Gables. Whether an "old friend" of Anne's or meeting her for the first time, this play will solidify a lasting friendship between the viewer and one of literature's most unforgettable characters.
