Here's a contemporary and comedic interpretation of the allegorical story of a man who learns he must prepare to meet his Maker, and then does! As his doom approaches, Everyman discovers that family, friends and fortune cannot accompany him, and that even strength, beauty, intellect and emotion are no match for the Grim Reaper; yet faith, hope and charity prevail. This timeless tale is especially intended for groups ready to move beyond religious skits and homily dramas to do something more challenging, less preachy, and more theatrical. And did we say funny? The theatrical conventions of juxtaposing contemporary and medieval references and also having actors shift abruptly from onstage focus to directly addressing the audience are intentional. They create a heightened sense of reality in which the audience can continually relate what's happening onstage to their own experience, taking on a serious subject in a playful environment. With a flexible cast and minimal set requirements, this show is ideal for those with a limited budget or who wish to tour.
