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?


Review by Courtney Thomas for Sightlines magazine, November 17, 2022



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. 

Bottle Alley Theatre Company is a DIY punk theatre company specializing in found space theatre. We have been staging strictly strange work in increasingly odd and beautiful places since 2012. You can find out more about us at bottlealleytheatre.com
