Louisa May Alcott subject of talk at Sunday Lyceum

Marianne Donnelly will portray Louisa May Alcott at the Monadnock Lyceum held at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Sunday at 11 a.m.

Alcott, author of “Little Women,” was an abolitionist, suffragist, Civil War nurse, Walpole dramatics enthusiast, writer, and trailblazer and, in this presentation, will speak on these experiences.

Living-History actress Marianne Donnelly’s, “Beyond Little Women: Louisa May Alcott,” has been presented at colleges, schools, theaters, history museums and libraries, touring for more than 20 years.

A Concord descendant of the Alcotts said, “Louisa would be proud of how you portray her.” Boston Globe called this show, “delightfully accurate...”

Donnelly is a multidisciplinary performing artist specializing in quality family entertainment, with accurate content, in a creative, participatory style. She also tours “Calamity Jane: How the West Was Fun” and “Janis Joplin: Piece of My Mind.” She is a Harvard graduate, avid swimmer, press-reporter and fiery-spirited activist.
