2022/23 Season

Everybody

September 11 - October 17, 2022

Written by: Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
Directed by: Jennifer Chang

A modern riff on the 15th-century morality play Everyman, this is the story of “Everybody,” and their journey through life’s greatest mystery—the meaning of living. Representing the randomness of life and death, some of the cast are assigned roles by lottery during the show, creating a unique viewing experience each night. We have to do it that way, it says so in the script.

Finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize!

“[Everybody] fills the heart in a new and unexpected way.” -The New Yorker

“… provocative and involving, it is also funny. Wildly funny, in fact.” -Huffington Post

“…[a] very meta and saucy adaptation…” -Time Out NY
