A new adaptation by Carol Ann Duffy
Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor
Directed by Rufus Norris
BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).
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.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman 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.

Suitable for 15+ This production contains depictions of recreational drug use and frequent use of strong language.
Drug use is depicted in a stylised manner and humorous context rather than being realistic or ‘gritty’ in any way. The strong language, whilst frequent, is not used in an aggressive, abusive or violent manner, is also quite humorous.
