Production History

David Rabe's The Orphan  | Open: 07/26/13 Close: 08/07/13
David Rabe's The Orphan is a gonzo retelling of The Oresteia. Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, sex, drugs and the murderous Manson family collide in this comical but deeply disturbing look at our relationships with our mothers, fathers, and the nature of violence. The cast includes: Eric Tucker and Ted Lewis of Bedlam's acclaimed Saint Joan and Hamlet, Flor De Liz Perez of the New York Neo-Futurists and Pioneer Theatre Company favorite, Andy Rindlisbach, in his New York debut. The production features original music composed by Jen Jackson, a recent grad of the Yale School of Drama.  Aaron Sparks directs a lively and relevant new production of this rarely produced David Rabe play, not seen on the professional New York stage since its premiere at the Public Theatre in 1973. David Rabe significantly revised The Orphan after its original production, and the play has never had a major New York production in its current form.
