Synopsis

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling.

Forced to abandon the life he has built, he embarks 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.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, <i>Everyman</i> asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives.

A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, this new adaptation by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy was presented at the National Theatre, London, in April 2015.
