Spoiler alert: Everybody dies
Produced by Cross Pollinate Productions, EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is coming to Sydney on 6 March at Kings Cross Theatre.
A finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Price, and described as "theatre rather unlike anything you might have seen" (The Huffington Post), EVERYBODY brings the talent of some of Sydney's most exciting actors together for a unique theatrical experience where the actors' roles are determined by a lottery live on stage at every show. This means that each performance has one hundred and twenty different potential casting variations. It is literally a different show every night.
A modern adaptation of the fifteenth century morality play Everyman, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' play follows a central protagonist (chosen from the cast by lottery at each performance) as they make their journey to a final reckoning. Along the way, they will try to convince Friendship, Family, Strength and others to accompany them on their quest, in an attempt to answer life's greatest mystery.
The pairing of emerging and established artists, occupying the intimate and accessible Kings Cross Theatre is truly an exciting and unique theatrical event.
