The Castle

The Castle $10.99

David Fishelson & Aaron Leichter from a dramatization by Max Brod based on Franz Kafka

Published by Dramatists Play Service

8 Male 3 Female

By turns sexy, comic and horrifying, this new stage version of The Castle tells the story of a man who decides to fight a monstrous bureaucracy rather than give in to it, attempting and failing to gain entrance to a castle where he has been summoned to work

In its surreal depiction of an all-powerful organization (which some, including Thomas Mann, have called a metaphor for God), The Castle is a black comedy for our times

"A brilliant evocation of a nightmare world. Perfectly captures the bureaucratic barriers of the novel" - Wall Street Journal
