The Actors’ Gang is an experimental theatre and non-profit group founded in 1981 by a group of actors including Tim Robbins, the playwright of Dead Man Walking and the director of the film Dead Man Walking. The Actors’ Gang’s mission is:
- 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;
- and to bring the freedom of self-expression to the incarcerated.

Tim Robbins donates all of his royalties from The Dead Man Walking School Theatre Project to The Actors’ Gang.
