We’re bringing our oft toured show of Everyman to London for the first time this year. It’s been great fun working on it, especially considering how serious the play is. It’s about what the actions in your life mean, what your good and bad deeds are – what good and bad deeds even are. It’s quite intense at times, but we like it that way.
"Amazing performance, although I knew it would be. So thought provoking and moving. At one point I thought I was going to cry!!"
Everyman has been seen all over the country, but London kept being missed out of our tours. We’re very sorry about that, it’s nothing personal. Every year we also try to produce at least one other revival of a more obscure piece of early drama, something that has never or rarely been seen before.
"A triumph! Thought provoking, light & dark, everything for a complete performance - superb!!"
"Fantastic performance, totally captivating from start to finish. Superb!"
Everyman is a play that many people have come across (if not in the original, then in a modern version at the National Theatre a few years back) but our version is a bit different. We use the audience to help tell the story, and that means the moral questions of the play come into play in a very different way to the original. It’s not Pantomime, so the audience doesn’t have to do much, but do be prepared to interact with the performance. And remember to think about your good and bad deeds before you come in.
"Fascinating and moving - thank you for an amazing performance. Very thought provoking."
The Summoning of Everyman comes to The Bread & Roses Theatre 8-12 August at 7.30pm!
