Everyman archiveA man sets out on a journey to find out what lasts forever. Is it friendship, family, possessions, knowledge, or good deeds? In this funny, tender and moving play Everyman discovers the things that endure; the things that make us who we are. Written in 1500, Everyman has entranced and amazed audiences for over five hundred years. Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives.
