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.
