EVERYBODY Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm Locations: Online Details:
By Branden Jacobs Jenkins
Directed by Bill Gillett
November 11-22, 2020
THE STORY: This modern riff on the fifteenth-century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from amongst the cast by lottery at each performance) as they journey through life’s greatest mystery—the meaning of living.
Finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize. “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.” —Huffington Post. “…[a] very meta and saucy adaptation…” —Time Out NY. “[EVERYBODY] fills the heart in a new and unexpected way.” —The New Yorker.
The performance will be shown online. A link will be sent to all patrons on the day of each performance. Please note that each performance will have a unique link. Please register for multiple nights to see more than one performance. Please note that the performances times listed denote when the performances will be available online.
