Amy and the Orphans

 



During a road trip across the Long Island Expressway, a woman with Down syndrome helps her family deal with their father's death.

From the producers: 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. 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. "Amy and the Orphans" is a rollicking ride that proves it’s never too late to follow a new road.

Playwright Lindsey Ferrentino returns to the Roundabout following the acclaimed production of her play "Ugly Lies the Bone." Her other plays include "Kokomo," "Moonlight on the Bayou," "Magic Man" and "Paradise Bar and Grill." "Amy and the Orphans" was first commissioned for Roundabout Underground, a program which fosters new works by emerging theatre artists.



Leading the cast are Jamie Brewer ("American Horror Story"), Tony winner Debra Monk ("Redwood Curtain," "Steel Pier"), and veteran actor Mark Blum ("The Assembled Parties"). They are joined by Vanessa Aspillaga, Diane Davis and Josh McDermitt. Tony nominee Scott Ellis ("She Loves Me," "Time and the Conways") directs.

What's the Roundabout? One of the great nonprofit dreadnoughts of the New York theater scene, the Roundabout has three Broadway venues and an Off-Broadway stage in midtown. Prominent artists are usually engaged, significant work is usually done, and even at the smallest of the theaters, the work has the uniform quality that one would expect from such a large and prominent shop.
