Actors' Gang says…

To inaugurate its 30th Anniversary season, The Actors’ Gang announces that acclaimed director Dominique Serrand will direct the Gang’s sizeable ensemble in Peter Barnes’ Olivier Award-winning comedy, Red Noses.  Red Noses is a dark comedy set in 1348, France. The Black Death decimates Europe, killing one third of the population. Scavengers ravage the dead. Zealots self-flagellate seeking to defy death in Christ’s purification. The church all but deserts the populace. In this hopeless time, one priest will do the unimaginable…make people laugh. Originally presented in London in 1985 as the AIDS epidemic grew, Red Noses won the Olivier Award for Best Play.  Laughter is contagious.
