(Chapel Hill, NC, January 9, 2020) PlayMakers Repertory Company proudly presents “Everybody,” the award-winning, Pulitzer Prize finalist comedy that asks us to consider: What is a life well lived? Directed by Orlando Pabotoy in his PlayMakers debut, the production runs from January 22 to February 9, 2020.

What do you do when Death comes knocking to tell you that your time is up? Everybody, who doesn’t want to meet Death alone, starts looking for people and things to take into the afterlife. Along this existential, hilarious, and life-affirming journey, Everybody meets Friendship, Strength, Kinship, Beauty, Cousin, Mind, Stuff, Senses, and Love. Who or what will Everybody be able to take to the grave? Adding to the play’s theatrical magic, each night, five brave actors will have their characters chosen by lottery, as they fight to cheat Death.

This play is rated PG-13 due to strong language and content; we encourage patrons to use their own discretion in determining the age appropriateness of the material. Please contact our Box Office for more details.
