The Actors’ Gang: The New Colossus

February 20–22
The Moore Theatre

Ashley Randall

In The New Colossus, 12 actors from all over the world are telling their ancestors’ stories in 12 different languages and 12 different eras, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland, drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. An intensely physical production, with live music, poetry and kinetic movement, The New Colossus is an homage to the strength, resilience and dignity of the immigrants and refugees that risked their lives to find a better life.

Written by The Actors’ Gang Ensemble and Tim Robbins.
