Based on the medieval morality play Everyman (or The Summoning of Everyman), Everybody is an allegorical quest in which the title character “Everybody” pleads with his companions—entities like “Kinship,” “Friendship,” “Stuff”—in the hope that one of them will accompany him to his appointment with Death. Brilliantly updated and contemporized, Everybody was a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.The play features the unique casting quirk of using a lottery system to define the roles of the play. Of the robust 9-person cast, five brave actors will play a multitude of roles with their characters chosen by lottery onstage every night — with a possible 120 combinations — as they fight to cheat Death.Content Advisory: PG -13. Adult Themes and Language.
