Description

“One of this country’s most original and illuminating writers” ("The New York Times") shines his light on the 15th-century play "Everyman" with startling results. Everybody -- a role assigned each night from a small cast of actors by lottery live on stage -- is a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling and Everybody must go on the journey of a lifetime. Obie Award winner and MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ("An Octoroon_) has created an irreverent, rollicking ride that asks deep questions of all who see it. Remixing the archetypal medieval morality play into an explosive experiment of wit and emotion, Everybody “fills the heart in a new and unexpected way” (_The New Yorker").
