Cassandra is 17. She’s writing a diary about her eccentric family. They are behind with the rent for the tumbledown castle that seemed so romantic when they moved in; the roof is leaking, and the family is surviving on oatcakes and eggs. But the new landlord is a wealthy young American, with an attractive brother. Perhaps things are about to change.

Set in the bohemian England of the 1930s, Dodie Smith’s classic coming-of-age story is thrillingly brought to life on stage in this warm, funny and magical new musical.

This is a big-hearted night out that more than captures the soul of Smith’s beloved castle.
Daily Mail

Stays true to Dodie Smith’s first novel… visually spectacular
★ Watford Observer

Brigid Larmour’s muscular production… cleverly retains the novel’s pathos while giving the ending a modern twist. Will it capture your heart? I reckon it will.
Daily Telegraph

I Capture the Castle musical labour of love oozes romance… There is such a lot to like here, from Ti Green’s brilliant design… to Shona Morris’ movement… … this old-fashioned show is full of integrity and will bring pleasure to thousands who love the novel. Including me.
