Between 1854 and 1929, over 250,000, mostly immigrant children were removed from the streets of New York and shipped on “orphan trains” to small town and farming community families all throughout the United States. Today, an estimated one of every twenty-five Americans has some connection to one of those children who were relocated. Cathy Spielberger Cassetta has taken this largely unknown story and written Homeward Bound: An Orphan Train Journey, now in its world premiere production at The Tabard Theatre Company, where she is also founder and artistic director.
