Harbinger Theatre presents “Andy and the Orphans”

ALBANY— Since December, the Harbinger Theater organization has produced four plays garnering raves, welcoming over 1,000 audience members between all of the shows. The goal was to produce Capital Region premieres by underproduced playwrights.

Harbinger Theater will present Andy and the Orphans by Lindsey Ferrentino with direction by Patrick White at Albany Barn, 56 Second Street in Arbor Hill. 

“We chose this play before my mother and brother had passed away within 10 days of each other this past Spring so I had no idea I would be dealing with a family comedy about how a death of a family member impacts all less than three months after I experienced that very thing,” said White. “I love the opportunity to play with this great group of people. I love that this play gives me the courage to have fun.”

When their 85-year-old father dies, sparring siblings Maggie and Jake must face a question: How to break the bad news to their brother Andy, who has Down syndrome and has lived in a state home for years? Along the way, the pair find out just how much they don’t know about their family and each other. It seems only Andy knows who he really is.

The dates of the show are Sept. 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, and Oct. 1, and all shows begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased on the Eventbrite website. There will be Q&A sessions after each Friday show.
