Show Description:

YOLO! You Only Live Once. And everybody has to die. But what really happens when we pass on? And how do we prepare? Riffing off the 15th century morality play Everyman, Obie Award-winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins shares a dark comedic look at the inevitability of death and the meaning of life in his acclaimed Pulitzer-Prize finalist, Everybody. When the character Everybody is told that their time is up, they attempt to bargain with Death on what or who they might bring on their final journey. Featuring the CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program Class of 2024, Everybody is a wildly funny and heartfelt ride through our humanity.
