Mary, a mother of two, is doing the ironing one Saturday morning when she feels something on her shoulder. It’s the beginning of a series of events that will change things for ever. For every one.

A re-imagining of Everyman, one of the oldest stories in English drama, Jo Clifford’s bold and haunting play tells a deeply emotional and warmly funny story of a voyage into the heart of living – and of what it means to lose the people we love.

Every One was first performed at the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh, in 2010, and was revived in a new production by Chris Goode & Company at Battersea Arts Centre, London, in 2016.

‘Astonishing… an open wound of a play… a work of cathartic brilliance’

‘Powerfully effective… slippery but devastating’
The Stage

‘A quietly radical reworking of Everyman… deeply compassionate’

‘A big rollercoaster ride through the responsibilities we have to ourselves, our family, and the wider world’
