The Upper School Theatre program invites you all to our spring production of EVERYBODY by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins! EVERYBODY is an inventive, provocative and very funny adaptation of a 15th century morality play, originally written during a time of pandemic. While it’s a comedy, the work manages to address serious issues of race, white fragility, social media, friendship, family obligations, materialism, mortality, and what makes for a life well-lived.
One of the most exciting aspects of the play is that the main role is chosen at random between four members of the cast at each performance – those actors won’t know whether they’re playing the role until the show has actually started. So, each of the eight performances listed below will be an utterly different experience – depending on whose number is up, literally! Those actors are Isabella Aguilar ’21, Isaiah Kirkland ’22, Silas Lloyd ’21, and Youyang (Sophie) Qin ’23. The production is best for middle school aged children and older—there is some mild profanity.
50 spots will be held for each outdoor performance. Masks and distancing are required. Reservations are mandatory for attendance due to COVID protocols. All audience members are encouraged to bring their own blankets or beach chairs for sitting.
