Every Castle, Ranked

Join us for Seattle Rep’s first in-person, public work-in-progress showing since 2019!

A castle is the ultimate “expectation vs. reality” meme. Like a lot of kids, Lindy West (Hulu's Shrill) grew up dreaming of castles and princes, of a magic beyond everyday life. But reality has a way of grinding the fantasy out of you. Parents die, insecurities get in the way of dreams, and it turns out castles aren’t magical at all—they’re just wet, stinking military installations built to fortify the immoral power of horrible men. Outrageous! In Every Castle, Ranked, a now 40-something Lindy takes us on a hilarious, bittersweet journey through her own disillusionment, her understanding of self, her complicated relationship with the spotlight, and the history of toilets.
