In this rediscovered gem of a play, the lives of 17 year-old Cassandra Mortmain and her eccentric English family are turned upside down with the arrival of a handsome new landlord. As the Mortmains struggle to accept the strangers in their midst, new possibilities and new love unexpectedly begin to bloom. Dodie Smith (also author of The One Hundred and One Dalmatians among others) adapted her delightful romantic novel for the stage in 1954. Terry Teachout, of the Wall St. Journal wrote, "The word 'irresistible' is rarely true, but I don't see how anyone not descended from Scrooge McDuck could fail to fall for 'I Capture the Castle.'"
