An allegorical inquiry into common elements of humanity, this 15th Century theatrical standard is for every man or woman seeking the meaning of life through death. Drawing on archetypes of good and evil, self and shadow, Everyman delves into the eternal through good works and the sacrament of penance and confession. Anointed with a prophetic confrontation with his creator, Everyman plots out a provisionary final journey of life by stepping into a metaphoric world of personal qualities and represented values. This stark play continually gives the universal message of impermanence: “Your tyme draweth fast…”
