Full Production and Company Descriptions

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 Jennifer Lynn 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.

Children of an Idle Brain is a company composed of ambitious theatre artists in the beginning stages of their careers. We are dedicated to telling good stories with ingenuity and a restless curiosity. We choose works that acknowledge the extraordinary in the ordinary and embrace the joys and struggles of being human. We believe in the theatre. We invite our audience to discover and celebrate with us. The Orphan is our inaugural production.
