Synopsis: "After their father's death, two unhinged siblings reunite with Amy, their movie-loving sister who has Down syndrome. Together, they careen down the Great American Long Island Expressway, navigating strip malls, traffic jams and some serious (and not-so-serious) family drama. An unexpected turn reveals the moment that changed their lives...and the fact that Amy may be the only one who knows her own mind. Amy and the Orphans is a rollicking ride that proves it's never too late to follow a new road."
The creative team behind Amy and the Orphans features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Alejo Vietti, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, and original music & sound design by John Gromada.
Jamie Brewer is best known for her roles as Adelaide "Addie" Langdon in "American Horror Story: Murder House" and as Nan in "American Horror Story: Coven" and as Marjorie in "American Horror Story: Freakshow". She also became the first woman with Down syndrome to ever grace the catwalk at New York Fashion Week in 2015.
