Everybody is a modern riff on the 15th century morality play Everyman. Everybody is chosen from the cast by lottery at each performance, which plays up the randomness of death and the universality of the human condition; Everybody journeys through what’s considered life’s greatest mystery – the meaning of living while at the same time being “wildly funny.”
An Absurdly Funny Play about Death
EVERYBODY is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection.
By Keythe Farley, Brian Flemming & Laurence O’Keefe | Music Directed by Katya Stanislavskaya | Directed by Catherine Doherty
