The Castle, written and directed by David Rothenberg, is a dramatic and inspirational tale of four formerly incarcerated New Yorkers' courageous paths to rebuilding their lives.

From the New York Times:

“The Castle” had its origins in 1967, when David Rothenberg, the show’s director, produced “Fortune and Men’s Eyes,” an Off Broadway play about a man’s experience in a youth detention center. He went on to establish the nonprofit Fortune Society, which seeks to improve prison conditions and help ex-convicts. The castle in the title is the society’s stately halfway house on the Upper West Side, for people newly out of the penal system.
