We Have Always Lived in the Castle
by Bottle Alley Theatre Company
Nov. 04 - Nov. 11, 2022
A fatal, mysterious tragedy claims the lives of most of the Blackwood family, leaving tightly-bonded sisters Constance and Merricat and their eccentric uncle Julian the sole survivors. Six years later, they have lead a solitary yet whimsical life shut away in their family estate: alienated from the hateful, suspicious occupants of their sleepy village. But the sudden arrival of their cousin Charles begins to open old wounds anew and threatens to send the family spiraling towards total destruction...what did really happen that fateful day six years ago?
We Have Always Lived in the Castle, an adaptation of the novel by Shirley Jackson, is a gothic horror piece revolving around a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and their alienation from a hateful, suspicious New England village.
