The Denison University Department of Theatre presents “Everybody,” an adaptation of the fifteenth-century European morality play "Everyman" at 8 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Oct. 1, 2, and 3, and Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Oct. 6, 7, 8, and 9.
The time has come, "God" says, for Death to go forth and fetch Everybody so she/he/they—an actor determined by a random lottery from among the cast at each performance—can give an account of how they've lived their life. But Everybody is terrified to go alone and tries to find someone to keep them company on their final journey. A playful and profound examination of the human condition, "Everybody" was written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and was a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Directed by Eleni Papaleonardos
