The Castle II: An Evening with The Fortune Society

The Fortune Society and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service present a production of the off-Broadway show Variety Magazine calls "profoundly eloquent."

The Castle II tells the story of four formerly imprisoned New Yorkers, with a total of 60 years of incarceration. Conceived and directed by Fortune Society founder David Rothenberg, and performed by those who lived the stories, these individuals share their stunningly raw journeys through crime, privation and redemption, all tied together by their shared time at The Fortune Society's flagship residential facility in Harlem, The Fortune Academy (a.k.a. "The Castle").

After the show, join us for a cocktail hour and an open dialogue about the work Fortune Society is doing to help Open the Door for individuals re-entering society.
