Orphans - Street Corner Arts

  • The Back Pack Co-Lab 2400 East Cesar Chavez Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

ORPHANS is the story of two brothers living on their own in a North Philadelphia row house. Treat steals for a living while Phillip stays at home, hidden from the world, surviving only on canned tuna fish sandwiches. One night, Treat brings home a drunk older man, Harold, in the hopes of robbing him, but Harold is too smart for Treat's tricks. He convinces the boys to use their house as a base of operations for petty thievery. In a strange, hilarious, and moving way, Harold begins to care for the orphaned brothers. Anyone can be a father, it takes someone special to be a Dad.
