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.
Guardian

  • The Audit

    Wed 14 - Thu 15 Mar

    The global economy is a mess. The crash has landed, the tide’s swept out, and it’s taken our hope with it. The rich have got richer, the middle’s squeezed tight, and the poor are being dragged ever downwards. The Audit tells the story of how a nation raised their voices in protest, and how collective power can move a mountain – even if only a little. The Audit is Proto-type's second sh...
