The Castle – Free Performance
I just love anything that’s free! And here is a local opportunity to enjoy a deeply engaging stage performance.
The play “The Castle” is an on-stage production, also made into a movie a few years ago, that tells the stories of four ex-convicts with a collective total of over 70 years in New York prisons. This production traces their real-life journeys . . . . from childhood, to a life of crime, to prison, and ultimately to redemption. The performance is always followed by a talk back between the performers and the audience.
“The Castle,” written and performed by Angel Ramos, Casimiro Torres, Kenneth- Harrigan and Vilma Ortiz Donovan, and conceived of and directed by David Rothenberg. It opened off-Broadway in New York City at New World Stages in 2008 and played for over a year. Since then, it has toured throughout the country to dozens of prisons, colleges, religious organizations, criminal justice conventions and even an annual meeting of over 200 parole officers.
And now you can enjoy a free live performance of this thought-provoking play at Union County College Roy Smith Theater, on Monday, October 28th, at 3:00 PM. For more information, call 908-709-7501, or visit the Union County College Events site.
