CityLit Theatre to stage “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” in 2012!
One of my favorite Chicago theater companies, CityLit, has announced auditions for their 2012 adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s uber-creepy/wonderful “We Have Always Lived in the Castle.”
CityLit focuses on adaptations of literary works to the stage, and in the past they’ve done wonderful productions of “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde,” “The Confession,” “Oh, Boy!” and “A Year with Frog and Toad” that I’ve really enjoyed. This time around, they’re taking on a book that I still can’t get over, and I have to imagine that this creepy tale of outcast sisters in a small town will translate beautifully to the stage.
The show will open February 24th, 2012.
More news to come as I learn it.
