"Orphans" is the story of Treat (Jack Wefso) and Phillip (Christian Mast), two orphaned brothers who live in their decrepit North Philadelphia row house. They survive on petty thievery and a steady diet of tuna fish and daytime television until the violent older brother decides to kidnap Harold (Rick Yaconis), a notorious Chicago gangster. Harold soon becomes the force that will forever change their lives. "Orphans" was revived on Broadway in 2013 and nominated for Best Revival of a Play as the most talked about darkly comic play of the season.

Lyle Kessler began his career as an actor studying with Lee Strasberg. He was accepted into the Director's Unit of The Actors Studio where he wrote and directed his first one act play.

"Orphans" was directed by Gary Sinise and opened at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre before starting its successful Off Broadway run; Albert Finney, who also starring the film, won the Olivier Award for his performance in the London West End production.
