About This Show

After their father’s death, two unhinged siblings reunite with Amy (Jamie Brewer of American Horror Story), their movie-loving sister who has Down syndrome. Together they careen down the 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. Written by Lindsey Ferrentino, who made her New York debut at Roundabout Theatre with Ugly Lies the Bone, and directed by Scott Ellis (The Elephant Man), Amy and the Orphans is a rollicking ride that proves it’s never too late to follow a new road.
