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’
