Venturing Out writes,
“Originally written and performed Off-Broadway by four ex-offenders, The Castle interweaves their real life stories from childhood to crime to creating straight and sober lives filled with hope and courage. Through emotionally compelling monologues, the play conveys a powerful message about the challenges that ex-offenders face and societal treatment of people coming out of prison.
The Castle is the first off-Broadway play to be comprised entirely of formerly incarcerated actors.”
The staged reading will be performed on December 8 as part of a fundraiser for Venturing Out, a Wellesley based non-profit dedicated to developing entrepreneurship among incarcerated and court-involved adults and high-risk youth.
