Rufus Norris directs Everyman, adapted by Carol Ann Duffy, with Chiwetel Ejiofor in the title role.
Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to
abandon the life he has built and embark 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, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, this new production has words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.
