If you like Masterpiece Theater, you will like I capture the castle. The English are known for their eccentrics and this family has them but they are in utter poverty. When the heir comes over from America to view his property the two sisters of the castle go after him to bring in an income.

There was a reason the theatre was half-full, the show was less than satisfying. Although the staging was great, for me, I found I couldn't connect to the show's characters. My teen guest and I both had difficulty deciphering what was being said...continued
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.”
