Orphans is a play by Lyle Kessler
Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster, Tom Sturridge
It premiered in 1983 at the Matrix Theatre, Los Angeles, where it received critical and commercial success and won the Drama-Logue Award.
Lyle Kessler’s Orphans, among many of his other pieces of literature, has been praised as a hybrid of 20th century realism, Pinter-esque absurdism, and Shakespearean tragedy, but in many ways it aligns itself better with the literary tradition of Magical Realism, a more prevalent genre in Latin American countries than in the North American theatre. The way Orphans can move from a hyper realistic state into a parable while still maintaining its emotional pull and deeply felt sense of reality goes well with what magical realism is understood to be—magical elements blended into a realistic atmosphere in order to access a deeper understanding of reality.
