Everyman by Carol Ann Duffy

Guildhall School of Music & Drama

Everyman artwork

Everyman asks whether it is only at the end that we can truly understand our lives, exploring ‘both the frantic dizziness of a money-driven world and the beckoning finality of death’ (Guardian). 

Everyman is at his peak; successful and loved by everyone, when suddenly Death comes calling. Deserted by friends, family and everything he’s built for himself, Everyman sets out on a final frantic search for a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence.  

Award-winning poet and playwright Carol Ann Duffy’s thrilling contemporary adaptation of the fifteenth century play The Summoning of Everyman, is directed by Katherine Nesbitt.
