Amy and the Orphans
at Laura Pels Theatre
Amy and the Orphans is a rollicking ride that proves it’s never too late to follow a new road.
Hop in, buckle up, and hold on for dear life in this raucous family road trip. After their father’s death, two unhinged siblings reunite with Amy, their movie-loving sister who has Down syndrome (Jamie Brewer, American Horror Story). Together, they careen down the Great American Long Island Expressway, navigating strip malls, traffic jams and some serious (and not-so-serious) family drama. An unexpected turn reveals the moment that changed their lives…and the fact that Amy may be the only one who knows her own mind.
