20th – 25th January 2020
Mary, a mother of two, is doing the ironing one Saturday morning when she feels something on her shoulder. It’s the very beginning of a series of events that will change things for ever. For everyone.
A re-imagining of Everyman, one of the oldest dramas in English, 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.
It was first performed at the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh, in 2010, and was revived in a new production by Chris Goode and Company at Battersea Arts Centre in 2016.
The Guardian reviews
“processes the trauma of death most profoundly“
“tender, private, vulnerable, self-deprecating humour and a rhetorical elegance”
“the play is both extraordinary and everyday”
The Scotsman review:
“a beautiful, strange and thought-provoking meditation on sudden death”
The Barony Players performed the amateur premiere of this thought provoking and challenging play.
“So very impressed with the show tonight. You’ve done something you should all be proud of. “
“EVERYONE, Very well done TO ALL OF YOU, really clever staging and outstanding performances. Couldn’t wait to get home and have a hug with my family.”
“Congratulations to the cast and crew of Everyone. So refreshing to see this kind of theatre done locally and done so well. I loved it! Break legs for tonight.”
