Bruce Montgomery Theatre
Penn Student Shows

Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, a foe, anyone, to speak in his defense. 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 truly understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama dating from the 16th century, it has been produced across the globe ever since. Join the Theatre Arts program for its profound and playful production of Everyman

*Opening Night tickets are free for all. Plus, stay after the performance for a reception (free food!) and a talk-back with renowned medievalist Prof. Emily Steiner.
