MAD HORSE THEATRE COMPANY PROUDLY PRESENTS ORPHANS
Mad Horse Theatre Company continues its successful 28th season with ORPHANS, by Lyle Kessler.
Two brothers live hand-to-mouth in an old home in North Philly. Phillip, sensitive, reclusive, never ventures out into the world. But Treat, a violent pickpocket and thief, kidnaps a mysteriously wealthy businessman - who turns the tables on the two brothers and in a strange, hilarious and moving way, becomes their long lost father figure.
"Orphans is wickedly funny one minute and powerfully emotional the next. Kessler uses humor as a subversive force, making the shift into despair a visceral gut punch." - The Hollywood Reporter
Mad Horse Artistic Director Christine Marshall states: "The play's cast is so small and tight needs to be a solid and strong one. With Company Member Nate Speckman, former Company Member Michael Kimball, and Guest Artist Dylan Chestnutt, Director Chris Horton has assembled that cast We're very excited to see the energy they generate onstage."
ORPHANS is directed by Mad Horse Company member Chris Horton. It stars Company member Nathan Speckman, and Guest Artists Dylan Chestnutt and Michael Kimball.
The design team includes Jennifer Halm-Perazone (stage and production manager), Stacey Koloski (set and properties designer), Christine Louise Marshall (costume designer), Tom Wyatt (lighting and sound designer), Allison McCall (assistant stage manager), and Scott Leland (carpenter).
