Everyman poster

By Anonymous. Directed by Patrick Tangredi. Design by Shae Uisna, Jamie Tait, Dan Hays, Erin Gilday

Told with fantastic larger than life puppets (built by PCC’s Puppetry class) and set in a wooded world of mystery and intrigue, this 600 year-old play follows the journey of the character “Everyman” who is tasked by “Death” to meet his maker “God” 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 Kin, Cousin, Goods, Beauty, Strength, and 5 wits, but none will follow him to his death. But 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 tale of humor, struggle, and the indomitable human spirit!

The play will have a running time of 75 minutes and is appropriate for ages 6 and older.
