The play, set in the early 1900s, opens as Anne Shirley, a young woman from the small village of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island, Canada, is composing an essay, part of the application to a college she hopes to attend.
Anne’s essay is autobiographical and the audience follows the story of her life through a series of vignettes which move them quickly from one scene to another.
Anne steps from narrating the play into the scenes and out again. Her family life at Green Gables Farm, with friends and acquaintances in her small rural community, and teaching her first year of school are filled with amusing, everyday events and a variety of entertaining characters.
“Anne of Avonlea” is an old-fashioned story sure to be enjoyed by all ages.
