A bawdy comedy about the Black Death written by Peter Barnes, directed by Dean Calusdian, and produced by Norwood Drama, “Red Noses” takes place in 1349, at the height of the Black Plague and features the many talents of Norwood High School’s drama students. Can it get any zanier than that?

A monk, played by Norwood High Junior Joe Ouellette, receives a sign from God that his duty is to make the sick and dying laugh. He forms a troupe of clowns (the Red Noses) who take their “small revolution” throughout plague-ridden France. Music and dancing are expected throughout the theater space, and knowing Dean, there will also be juggling, swordplay, nuns, clergy, and fallen women.
