Description

The Orphan Train tells the story of children on an orphan train that left New York City on May 28, 1914. The train travels to Midwestern towns in search of homes, any homes, anywhere, for the orphaned and unwanted children. The play presents the interactions between the orphans and the men and women hoping to foster or adopt children. The lonesome whistle wails as eight stories unfold, each with a memorable surprise. The Orphan Train is a heart-warming story about the importance of family that underscores the deep longing for love and acceptance inside us all.
