In this charming dramatization of L.M. Montgomery's enduring classic, Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew request an orphan boy to help work their farm. They are mistakenly sent the high-spirited red-head named Anne Shirley. Knowing they are ill-equipped to raise a child, Marilla attempts to send Anne back to the orphanage. With Matthew lobbying to keep Anne, Marilla ultimately agrees to let her stay at Green Gables. The play faithfully recreates the memorable events and characters from the brilliant novel: her friendship with Diana, her feuds with Gilbert Blythe, her adoration of Matthew, the mistaken bottle of cordial, the broken leg, the scholastic achievements, and the saving of Green Gables. Marilla and Matthew discover she is the best thing that ever happened to them, and Anne comes to understand she is a loved, worthwhile person. This lovely classic is a delight for audiences of all ages.
