You can’t take just anything with you
They say you can’t take it with you, but that won’t stop Everybody from trying! One of America’s hottest young playwrights gives the 15th-century morality tale a much-needed lift of theatrical whimsy, as Everybody—hounded by Death—desperately searches among everything and everyone in hope of finding something to take along on life’s final journey.
Five brave actors will be assigned their roles by lottery each night as they fight for the opportunity to cheat Death.
“Fills the heart in a new and unexpected way.”
The New Yorker
“Provocative and involving! Wildly funny!”
The Huffington Post

Where Are We Now?

After select performances, we will invite audience members to gather in an adjacent space for a fluid, dynamic, and intergenerational discussion on the themes of each play. You don’t even need to have tickets for that performance in order to join us for the conversation!
