Everyman is successful, popular, and riding high when Death comes calling. Forced to abandon the life they have built, Everyman embarks on a frantic search to find someone or something to defend them: friends, family, fortune. But Death is closing in and time is running out.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, this adaptation by poet Carol Ann Duffy was originally produced by the National Theatre, London, in 2015.
