Everybody

Dec 10, 2020 – Dec 14, 2020

The Utah Premiere of this new play, which was a Finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, is a funny and upbeat re-telling of one of the first plays ever written in the English language: the Christian morality play "Everyman." This new take on the classic exploration of the meaning of life and death, written by up-and-coming genius playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, takes Everybody on a journey to find what they can take with them when Death comes to call. In order to thematize the randomness of death, and destabilize our pre-conceived notions about identity, the play is written so that each of the actors in the show have memorized multiple different roles (including the central role of Everybody), and the character they will play will be chosen randomly in front of the audience each night. Each performance will be a completely unique experience. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE: *The cast will be tested for Covid-19 before the performances and only performers who received a negative result will be performing. *All audiences must wear a mask the entire time while in the building. *Audiences are required to be seated at least 6 feet away from any other audience member who does not reside in their same household. *If you are not willing to wear a mask for the entirety of your time in the school, we still appreciate your support and hope you will buy a ticket to watch the live stream. *When you purchase tickets, please leave at least 3 seats between your selected purchase and any other purchased seats in your row. Don't worry about seats in front of you or behind you, as we have already blocked those seats out on the map. We reserve the right to move your seats if two separate parties have selected seats too close to each other. We will send you an email letting you know if we have to move your seats.
