For the next three weekends, Community Players will depart from its usual repertoire of musicals and suspense plays. Instead, the theater group will present a provocative production about anger management and what happens when it’s missing.

“Orphans” is a hard-hitting drama about two young adult brothers. Older brother Treat supports his slightly retarded younger brother Philip and himself by petty crime. Treat invites an older man, Harold, home to drink, with the ulterior purpose of stealing his wallet. Little does Treat know that the action will change all three lives when Harold eventually becomes a father figure to the young men.

“Orphans” will run Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Jan. 18-19 and Jan. 25-26 at City Centre Playhouse.

Due to strong language, the show is not recommended for children.

Admission is $15 general, $12 for seniors and $10 for those in groups of 10 or more. Tickets are at The Book Seller, Harmony Books, Grannie’s Books and Gifts, and at the door.

The playhouse is at 127-A Bank St. in Grass Valley.

For more information, call 477-1107.
