Thomas Hischak once again affirms his abilities as a playwright in this skillful retelling of Charlotte Brontë's classic story. As with his best-selling adaptation, Little Women, Hischak preserves the heart-tugging emotions of the original novel while altering the work to give it an intrinsically dramatic feel. From a novel of more than 300 pages, this is a two-act play with a running time of approximately 85 minutes and suggestions for further cuttings.

Without doubling, the cast size would be in the range of 30 to 35 players, depending upon the number of girls one chooses to use at Lowood School. However, many of these roles are small parts, making double- and even triple-casting a matter of relative ease. This script includes suggested doubling to obtain a cast of 2 men, 14 women and a variable group of girls for use at both the Lowood and Morton schools.
