About this show

Strawdog Theatre Company completes their 21st season with Peter Barnes' dark comedy Red Noses, directed by House Theatre's Matt Hawkins. In Barnes' 1985 Olivier Award-winning play, the Black Plague has wiped out half of Europe's 14th century population, so God gives the young priest Father Flote a special mission to save his suffering people ... make 'em laugh. Flote gathers a band of desperately untalented misfits, turns them into clowns and together they search for salvation with hilarity. Hawkins, who also directed House's hit production of Hatfield & McCoy, makes his Strawdog directing debut with a 23-person cast.
