Staging Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Everybody: Post-Show Talk Back
Sunday, March 6, 2022 at 2 pm in Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre
This new adaptation, by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, of the late medieval morality play Everyman, one of the first recorded plays in the English language, explores the meaning of life and the roles we play along the way. The performers randomly draw lots live on stage each night to determine which actor will play which part in that evening’s performance.
The production is directed by Professor Matthew R. Wilson in the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design of George Washington University. It will be staged at the Dorothy Betts Marvin Theatre, 800 21st St NW Washington, DC, 20052, USA.
