About this show

Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle is a magical story of young love that takes place in the 1930's. Our heroine, Cassandra Mortmain is a 17-year-old girl struggling with the realities of life. Sheltered in the rural countryside she resides with her eccentric family in a crumbling castle. Cassandra dreams of becoming a writer and spends her time inventing stories, while at home watching her father struggle to complete a second novel after the success of his first, 12 years ago. Just when things could not get more complex, Rose, Cassandra's sister, sets the Mortmain family into a long and life changing sequence of events involving their American landlord and his brother. This lovingly dysfunctional family will make you smile, tear and belly laugh out loud. Cameron Watson directs.
