Description

Richard Wesley’s, The Mighty Gents is an arresting, moving play that tells the story of former members of a black youth gang “that had ruled the Central Ward of Newark having conquered their rivals the Zombies, who are now in their 30s and left only with the recollections of their past successes.”

It opened on Broadway in 1978 with cast members Morgan Freeman, Howard Rollins, Jr., Dorian Harewood and Starletta Dupois, now well-known award-winning/nominated actors.
