‘First love, unrequited love, married love..’

Cassie is 17. She is trying to ‘capture’ her eccentric family in her new diary - her irritating elder sister Rose, her unconventional stepmother Topaz, her orphaned admirer Stephen, and her novelist father James, who hasn’t written a word in years.  They are behind with the rent for the tumbledown castle that seemed so romantic when they moved in. The roof is leaking, it never stops raining and the family is surviving on oatcakes and eggs. 

But the new landlord is a wealthy young American, with an attractive younger brother, and Spring is in the air...

Set in the bohemian England of the 1930s, this warm and sharply funny coming-of-age story from the author of 101 Dalmatians is set to stunning original music by Steven Edis, with influences of swing, tango, beguine, English folksong and a hint of Cole Porter!

The Palace team bring a trademark blend of emotional storytelling and physical theatre to this brilliant new musical, developed and premiered here in Watford before going out on the road...
