Book by L. M. Montgomery
Play by Sylvia Ashby (Lubbock playwright)
A refreshing, contemporary telling of the classic story. Stern Marilla and her warm-hearted brother Matthew hoped to adopt a boy to work on their farm. But the orphanage sends young, befreckled Anne by mistake, and their lives will never be the same. Her warmth and wit affect everyone around her – even, eventually, the cold Marilla. We follow Anne through her rebellious years, her transformation into a young woman, and her romantic pairing with Gilbert. This play has been charming audiences around the world.
“Anne of Green Gables suits community theatre with a varied cast, simple set, and characters familiar to all of us. This version of the novel is concise yet detailed, humorous and bittersweet.”
