Description An anonymously-written morality play circa 1500, Everyman is an enigmatic tale of a doomed sinner's journey to better himself in the eyes of God. It confronts every man's past, present and future, with the ultimate existential question: In the face of death, What is it that gives meaning to our lives?

Co-directors Kathryn Hunter and Marcello Magni deploy their talents (both are members of Théâtre de Complicité) and offer, in the words of the British press, "a funky Mediterranean al fresco drama with a honey- stone set, the sound of cicadas, and bubbling water... turning obsolete morality into something a little more tangy." Featuring allegorical characters such as Good Deeds, Knowledge, Strength and Beauty, the virtually forgotten play is propelled by a brilliant cast led by Joseph Mydell as Everyman.
