NOTES FROM THE PLAYWRIGHT/DIRECTOR

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, is at its core, is a story of rejuvenation and resiliency, seen through the hopeful, wistful, and imaginative eyes of a Nova Scotian orphan who finds an unlikely family in an elderly brother and sister, who originally just wanted a boy to work the farm…and found a surprise in “Anne with an E” waiting at the train station.

The story is timeless. Everyone can relate with Anne. The beloved classic, written by L.M. Montgomery, has sold over 50 million copies and been translated into 20 different languages. The cast of LATTE implored me to create a new stage adaptation, and, it is obvious they have me wound around their little finger! And I absolutely loved adapting it for the stage. Anne has a special place in my heart, as I was a foster child myself, precocious beyond my years.

Wherever Anne goes, fun adventures and chaos seem to follow. She has been forced to grow up, in order to survive in the orphanage, as well as the harsh living placements she had to endure. But Anne has a special kind of resiliency that her imagination has blessed her with. And that grants her childlike innocence to see a life filled with miracles. She is a paradox of wisdom and naivety, wrapped up in the fiery will of a red-haired, free spirit.

Once Anne is able to put down roots, she is able to adjust the lens of her perception and recovers her youth as she is allowed to heal. It’s a vibrant coming of age story that allows us all to look around with new eyes and appreciate the miracles that surround us.

The ripples caused by Anne’s vision and imagination are mesmerizing. And the beauty of the show is how each-and-every one of the other characters are just as engaging and interesting as Anne. Matthew, Marilla, Rachel, Miss Stacy, Gilbert, Moody, Diana, Ruby, and the gang mutually grow and learn from Anne… as she learns from them. And to quote Anne, “It’s been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
