“We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to you, our Documentary donors, the film has been completed! It will be shown on public television stations nationwide this month, and will also be marketed as a DVD. We are equally excited to announce that a five-minute version of our Documentary will be included on the Masterpiece Little Women miniseries DVD!

A schedule of airings of our Documentary is available here; if you do not see your PBS station, please check local listings as new air dates/times are being added daily.

Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House Executive Director Jan Turnquist, who also hosts the Documentary noted that, “Making this film has been a powerful experience. I’ve long wished to share the remarkable history of bravery, social justice, and empowerment that were the hallmarks of Orchard House for nearly two centuries before Louisa wrote and set Little Women here. It was equally important to me that the Documentary affirm that the heart of our historic site is centered on the Alcott legacy and engenders joy and hope in our visitors. May of 2018 seems the most fitting debut for our Documentary, too, as we celebrate the 150th publication anniversary of Little Women and the release of the BBC Masterpiece Little Women miniseries. What wonderful times for Orchard House!”

In addition to our fabulous donors, we owe deep appreciation to the many people who worked on this film, especially Executive Producer Justin King, Editor Sam Krueger, and Orchard House Staffers Maria Powers and Iman Sakkaf.  Read more about our Documentary here.

We hope you enjoy Orchard House: Home of Little Women, and visit us very soon!
