Director's Statement:

"The play The Somonyng of Everyman, written in the 15th century, is an allegorical morality play intended to guide humanity towards salvation. Our play, EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, with wit, humor, and the realness of present-day society, allows us, when confronted by death, to ask fundamental questions regarding the behaviors and the priorities in our lives.

It is said that everybody dies, that what’s important is the journey. Nonetheless, what do we actually do when we are faced with death? Do we take inventory, do we look back, do we look forward? Who do we do the looking with? Will we be alone? What do we take with us?"
