Orphans ()

Produced by

The Coal Mine Theatre

Playwright: Dennis Kelly
Director: Leora Morris


The Coal Mine (1454 Danforth Ave)


April 9th, 2017 – September 30th, 2017


Danny and Helen have an unexpected visitor when Liam shows up, covered in blood, in this chilling exploration of violence and racism in urban society. Liam’s claim he offered assistance to an unconscious stranger bleeding in the street is soon exposed as an alt-fact. ORPHANS shakes up the preconceived notions of morality, loyalty and honesty while trying to keep quiet the violence and evil that lurks inside everyone. (
