ARMONK, N.Y. — The Small Town Theatre Company has announced plans to hold a staged reading of Lyle Kessler's play “Orphans” over two weekends this month.
The Katonah Village Library will hold performances at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18, while the Hergenhan Center in Armonk will hold performances at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday, April 23-25.
The play is about two brothers in a beaten-down Philadelphia row house – Phillip, a recluse who never ventures outside the house, and older brother Treat, who supports the two of them by committing petty crime.
As Treat makes the house a virtual prison for Phillip, he kidnaps Harold, an older man with money who becomes the father figure the pair have never had. Harold's own motives drive the story forward.
The cast includes Tom Coppola as Treat, who balances direction and choreography by night with producing Broadway video shoots and entertainment at SpotCo. Veteran Todd Santa Maria is Phillip, and Sam Morell has several duties on the production.
Morell plays the role of Harold, along with handling directing duties. He is the founder of The Small Town Theatre Company as well.
General admission tickets are $15.
