On that fateful day when we face death, who (or what!) will stand at our side? And, what will we think about the actions done and choices made in our lives?


Everybody by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is a modern riff of Everyman (one of the oldest English language plays) that brings this 600-year-old morality play up to the moment for our pandemic times.


Highly allegorical and contemplative yet infused with irony and irreverence, the central question of human existence is the beating heart of Everybody. The play’s storytelling asks what we all wonder: Who am I? Why am I here? Where will I be going when I leave this earth?


Written by MacArthur “Genius” grant winner and luminary Black playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. While the 15th century play Everyman focused on telling medieval people how to die, Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody flips the script and asks us to reflect on how we live. Audiences will see themselves mirrored in the play’s allegorical characters as they explore powerful themes such as friendship, family, and love in ways both serious and comical.
