WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a haunting, lyrical, and darkly humorous new musical based on the 1962 novel by Shirley Jackson, author of The Lottery and The Haunting of Hill House. Acquitted of a horrible crime six years ago, Constance Blackwood lives with her devoted younger sister Merricat and their uncle Julian in what was once the home of the richest--and most envied--family in a small New England town. Constance tends to the house and garden while Merricat invents magical charms to protect the surviving Blackwoods from the townspeople's prying eyes and vicious gossip. But talismans may not be powerful enough to keep the sisters together when their handsome cousin Charles comes to visit. Composer Todd Almond's recent projects include this season's Girlfriend at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and On the Levee at Lincoln Center Theater. Playwright Adam Bock and director Anne Kauffman previously collaborated on the plays The Typographer's Dream and The Thugs, for which they both received OBIE Awards. We Have Always Lived in the Castle performs at the University Theatre (222 York Street).
