West Coast Premiere
Everybody

by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
directed by Nataki Garrett

July 18-August 5

You can't take it with you,
but Everybody tries.

ďBranden Jacobs-Jenkins [is] one of this countryís most original and illuminating writersĒ The New York Times

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, hailed by the New York Times as ďone of this countryís most original and illuminating writers" explores the most universal of truths: you canít take it with you, but everybody tries. When Everybody faces imminent death, which companionóBeauty, Friendship, Stuff, or Loveówill make it to the final destination? The core company of actors will be cast by lottery every night, letting fate decide the journey as they play out this new riff on an ancient morality tale with surprising grace, humor, and heart.

This production contains fog & strobe effects, profanity, and the shedding of clothing (amongst other comforts and trappings of life). The performance is 90 minutes with no intermission.
