Description - Orphans by Ben Tanzer
Welcome to Chicago, where black helicopters police a city of burnt-out neighborhoods, and punk themes of drugs, lost innocence, and sex do battle while our worst fears about growing up come to life. In Orphans, Ben Tanzer brings us a dystopian tale of a strangely familiar - and a strangely empty-city. Thousands have already left for Mars, but here on Earth the workers have been replaced by robots and the lucky few who can still find employment are being replaced in their homes and in their beds by clones. The streets are full of the jobless and the recession is permanent. With no redemption in sight, Tanzer offers up a bleak play on contemporary male fears in a world that seems determined to bring them to life.
