Castle in the Sky is an excellent example of verbatim theatre, meaning that the actual words of the community were carefully adapted for the stage. Over the year following the slayings, members of Castlereigh Theatre Project interviewed family and friends of the accused and the victims, journalists, and city residents. These intimate revelations are woven together in a rumination on grief, loyalty, and violence. Castle in the Sky is about a community in crisis in a case where blame is difficult to assign.
