MEET ANNE WITH AN E!
Elderly siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert asked the orphanage for a boy. What they got was Anne Shirley- a plucky redhead with a huge imagination (and an even bigger temper!). Soon, Anne burrows her way into the hearts of the Cuthberts, and the residents of Avonlea, as she grows from a hysterical twelve-year-old to a whipsmart young woman who burns with ambition.
Adapted with the greatest of care and love for the material, this adaptation of the Canadian classic keeps a cinematic pace as it faithfully follows Anne's journey through all of its iconic moments, including ones that many stage versions often leave out. This script also more deeply explores the enemies-to-friends-to-future-lovers relationship between Anne and Gilbert that will please even the most purist 'Anne' fan.
This script is currently being readied for publication and licensing through Heuer Publishing.
