Seeking an ensemble of versatile actors with strong memorization skills (understudy experience preferred).
This modern riff on the 15th-century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from the cast by lottery at each performance) as they travel down a road toward life's greatest mystery. Making its regional premiere in Chicago following its 2017 world premiere off-Broadway, playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Gloria, An Octoroon) bases his new play on a medieval morality play that instructs sinners on how to repent and seek redemption.
None. "This is play written for a company of nine performers of varying generations, gender- and ethnic -identities. The exact breakdown of roles will vary from performance to performance via lottery or some other element of chance."- playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
