Synopsis

<p>BAFTA winner and Academy Award&reg; nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (<em>12 Years a Slave</em>) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama&rsquo;s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre&rsquo;s new Director Rufus Norris (<em>Broken, London Road</em>).</p><p><br /></p><p>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.</p><p><br /></p><p>One of the great primal, spiritual myths, <em>Everyman </em>asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.</p>
