A 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.Performers Chiwetel Ejiofor (Everyman), Stephen Aintree, Philip Martin Brown, Paul Bullion, Adam Burton, Michelle Butterly, Sharon D Clarke, Dermot Crowley (Death), Kate Duchene (God), Amy Griffiths, Nick Holder, Nicholas Karimi, Joshua Lacey, Penny Layden (Knowkedge), Ira Mandela Siobhan, Coral Messam, Jeshaiah Murray, Amanda Minihan, Itxaso Moreno, Tumo Reetsang, Kiruna Stamell, Clemmie Sveaas, Joshua Tikare.
