Crossing the gulf of centuries from medieval times to today, ¬Å“Everyman¬Â deals with timeless issues; it asks the important question: When you die, what really matters and what of our earthly life is lasting and significant?
Told with fantastic larger than life puppets and set in a metaphysical landscape of mystery and intrigue, this 600 year-old play follows the journey of the character “Everyman,” who is tasked by Death to meet God his Maker for a reckoning. Stalling for time, Everyman begs for the chance to bring a single companion with him to his death. He tries to enlist his Family (Kin, Cousin), Material Goods, Beauty, Strength, and his Five-Senses, but none will follow him to his death.
Will his feeble companion “Good Deeds” be worthy enough to follow him to his final reckoning? Come and find out, and see a modern spectacle that reaches across the centuries to tell a timeless existential tale of humor, struggle, and the indomitable human spirit.
Of special interest to this contemporary and exciting production are the puppet designs of guest artist Shae Uisna and the set design of Jamie Tait. In this vision of otherworldly and extraordinary events, Ms. Uisna has shown how powerful puppets can be in expressing ineffable experiences, while Mr. Tait has created a hauntingly lyrical world, a driftwood cathedral of skeletal trees for actors, shadows and puppets to tell their tale.
There is a FREE matinee performance on Thursday May 10th at 11:00AM and a final matinee performance on Sunday May 13th at 2PM.
Tickets are available a half-hour before performances at the Theatre. Theatre tickets are $10 general admission, $8 Seniors, Students and Staff, and $5 for groups of 12 or more. Box Office Phone: 971-722-4949
Director: Patrick Tangredi; Puppet Design: Shae Uisna; Set Design: Jamie Tait.
