MARMIE
Female. The matriarch of the March family. Ahead of her time. Deeply compassionate. Tough. Intelligent.

HANNAH / MRS. MINGOTT / AUNT MARCH
Female. H: the March's longtime housekeeper, cook, and de facto babysitter. A treasure; a traditionalist. Takes no nonsense. Matter-of-fact; she's the boss of that kitchen, for sure. MM: a very rich, stylish woman. AM: the most unpleasant old woman imaginable.

JO
Female. The second-to-oldest March. Does not fit comfortably within the given parameters of her given gender role. A deep fire within her. Impatient. Not the most tolerant. Wants to change the world. Very smart and knows it. A mix of insecurity and aspiration. Boyish and rough-and-tumble. Sometimes antagonistic. Can be quite awkward or abrupt; bad temper when riled. A great sense of humor. Passionate. Ahead of her time. A warrior. A special protective relationship with Beth.

MEG
Female. The oldest March daughter. Wears glasses. Acts as Marmie's second in the house. A romantic at heart - likes to dress up and have little luxuries in life.

BETH
Female. The third March. Very sweet and paralytically shy. Agoraphobic. An extremely special person. Almost incapable of going out in the world; sheltered by her family. Loves deeply and has deep empathy for everyone. Loves the simple things in life - so much that it hurts. Sees much more than anyone realizes. Brave and sensitive; quick to forgive and heal wounds. An observer. Possibly on the autism spectrum.

AMY
Female. The youngest March. Opinionated and spunky; popular and quite focused on style. Not the most tolerant. Sometimes puts on airs. Perhaps a bit spoiled. A perfect little lady - except for her temper, and her not-so-great command of "vocabilary." Grows up to be quite beautiful and elegant. Madly in love with Laurie.

MR. LAURENCE / MR. DASHWOOD / ROBERT MARCH / MESSENGER
Male. ML: Laurie’s grandfather. Hard exterior, but a good heart. MD: Boozy editor from whom Jo seeks publication. RM: Marmie’s husband and father to the March daughters. Civil war soldier who is wounded in combat and returns home.

THEODORE ‘LAURIE’ LAURENCE
Male. A sweet and handsome young man; sensitive. Funny, charming, and caring. A natural musician. Does not fit comfortably within the given parameters of his given gender role - he doesn't want to grow up to be a soldier or tedious man of business. Finds a family in the Marches.

JOHN BROOKS
Male. Laurie's sometimes stiff and awkward tutor. A poor man; well educated. Has a very noticeable limp - probably served in the war and was let home. Feels deeply. Quite madly in love with Meg.
