Une nouvelle adaptation de Carol Ann Duffy


Résumé: Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.

One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Commentaires : One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).
Presse : "It’s an admirable effort, with industrious, multi-tasking support from an ensemble of 22, but is it, finally, a play for today? It induces shivers as a memento mori, possesses a rare metaphysical curiosity too but the best plays today tend to have more to chew on." Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph

"... virtuosic production that captures both the frantic dizziness of a money-driven world and the beckoning finality of death." Michael Billington for The Guardian

"Foul-mouthed, moralistic, atheistic, theatrical; the first big production from the new regime at the Royal National Theatre grabs your attention but it is also a dumbed-down jumble." Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail

"As a vision of the battle between the soul and the world, Everyman isn’t revelatory. But as a statement of intent from Norris it’s bold." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
