Mission: To present new, unconventional and uncompromising plays and dynamic reinterpretations of the classics; to restore the ancient sense of the stage as a shared sacred space; to introduce theatre to children and help them find their own creative voices; to bring the freedom of self-expression to the incarcerated.

With your generous support The Actors' Gang can continue 25 years
of uninterrupted entertainment, enrichment and excellence for the
community, the country and the world.
Since less than 25% of our operating costs are generated by ticket
sales, it is individual donors, major gifts and grants that allow us to
develop and stage bold new works and reinterpreted classics from some
of the most exciting voices in theater today. It is only through your
generosity that we may continue our community outreach activities,
offered free of charge, which have transformed the lives of so many.
