Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm tells the story of a wild and mischievous girl who eventually wins the hearts of not only her doting Aunt Jane but her severe Aunt Miranda. Rebecca leaves her widowed mother, her six brothers and sisters, and her beloved farm to go live with her aunts in town and get an education. A spirited girl, she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, to her Aunt Miranda's disgust and dismay. At the heart of the play is a debate: whether or not children are basically good at heart, and whether or not it's a sin to be poor.

Published Reviews

"Chamberlain captures the charm and intelligence of Wiggin's novel with a script that deftly combines humor, emotion and message... Today, the play has a gentle relevance as we compare the simplicity and sparseness of Rebecca's world to the complexity of our own."

Peter Vaughan, Twin Cities Star Tribune

"Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is often used as a metaphor for idyllic youth... It is a wonderful story. It is good for children. And it is well told. Go see it and take your children."

Ed Felien, Southside Pride (Minneapolis)
