THE STORY: This modern riff on the 15th-century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from amongst the cast by lottery at each performance) as he or she travels down a road toward life’s greatest mystery.
“…[a] very meta and saucy adaptation…” —Time Out NY. “This is theatre rather unlike anything you might have seen…unusual, unconventional and eye-opening…Everyman is no barrel of laughs, being a morality play about death. EVERYBODY tells the same tale, with equal emotional heft; but it is not only provocative and involving, it is also funny. Wildly funny, in fact.” —The Huffington Post. “[EVERYBODY] fills the heart in a new and unexpected way.” —The New Yorker.
