So here I am, writing the piece that shows up in the front of each program, where the Artistic Director tries to offer a little more context around the play you’re about to see.

And here you are reading it. (Bless you.)

And here’s what’s different about this particular “Between Us.” It’s actually the last one I’m going to write. After a whole lotta years, I’m leaving the Alliance to head to Chicago’s Goodman Theatre. And in a completely serendipitous bit of programming magic (had no idea I was going anywhere when we picked this play), Everybody turns out to be more perfect than I thought. And I thought it was pretty perfect.

My co-director, Tinashe Kajese-Bolden, speaks to this eloquently a few pages into your program, when she talks about the very particular gift this play gives us. Everybody dives deep and hard into the notion of memento mori — the Stoics philosophy that we must always remember that we will die. Because only by sitting authentically with our own mortality do we come to a full appreciation of the beauty and possibility of our life. And while a job and city change isn’t a life or death transition, it is an inflection point that offers the same invitation. Be here now. And see fully all for which you ought be grateful, and make the most of every moment.

I have loved being here.

I am loving being here.

And I will always be grateful for this time, this city, this theatre, and all of the people who love it. | @alliancetheatre 4

Co-Directors Susan V. Booth and Tinashe Kajese-Bolden discuss Everybody ’s unique staging, timeliness, and challenge for its audiences

“This play [feels] like a fresh start,” says Co-Director Tinashe Kajese-Bolden. “It proposes a reset while also giving us some landscape to reflect on how we got to where we are today.”

Everybody, masterfully written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and inspired by the 15th century play Everyman, tells the story of Everybody, a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling, and Everybody must go on a journey to find what has had lasting significance in their lifetime.

“Sounds odd to talk about joy when you’re talking about mortality,” adds Co-Director Susan V. Booth, “But the tone and impact of this piece is so, so joyful. And in a time of ever-multiplying senses of division, a piece that reminds us of the most basic of human connections seems so very necessary.”

And she’s right. The only other story that comes to mind when thinking of a tale where the central character is Death is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This play, like that book, must masterfully balance the weight of the driving theme (the fact that the audience is watching the main character die) with a sense of humor that lightens the mood. | @alliancetheatre

Plus many more! Tickets and memb erships available a t Our stories are not simply told for you, but with you. SHARE YOUR STORY. PRESERVE YOUR STAGE . The posting of photos taken before the show, during intermission, or in our lobbies is not only allowed but strongly encouraged! We do kindly ask that you refrain from taking pictures, recording audio, or capturing video during the performance to allow our audiences and performers to stay connected with each other during our brief time together.

Recent events — namely the pandemic — have brought mortality to the forefront of our minds like never before. Co-Directors Booth and KajeseBolden kept this in mind when planning to bring Everybody to the CocaCola Stage.

“I’m not sure this play would resonate the same way if [the pandemic] hadn’t happened,” says Kajese-Bolden. “We are still searching for avenues to process what we all went through. This play invites not just the audience, but the artists, to explore the meaning of life through humor and physical play that hopefully leaves us thankful for another day to live on purpose.”

Since its origin on Signature Theatre’s Irene Diamond Stage in 2017, this play has captivated audiences with its cutting wit, hard-hitting questions, and, most notably, its unique storytelling device. Very rarely do actors (apart from swings) enter a theatre space not knowing what role they will be called upon to play, and yet that is exactly what Everybody asks them to do.

At the beginning of the play, five of the roles are decided by lottery, live before the audience. Most of Booth and Kajese-Bolden’s cast of “beautiful humans, inside and out” have each learned every single part in the show. “We knew we needed fearless performers,” Booth says, “who bring their full and authentic selves to the stage.”

“The thrill of the unknown is super delicious,” KajeseBolden adds. “No show will ever be the same because every night the roles are cast by lottery and there are 120 combinations. Crazy!”

Another way Everybody breaks boundaries is that the scenic design completely shatters the expectation of what the Coca-Cola Stage will look like. In addition to typical seating, the artistry of the woodwork in the house and additional seating have been added to the stage, creating an incredibly unique theatre-inthe-round experience.

“Lex Liang, our brilliant scenic and costume designer, has imagined an environment for this piece that truly celebrates the beautiful architecture of the Coca-Cola Stage,” Booth says. “And our actors will be inhabiting a whole lot more of it than just the stage.”

“It’s exciting when you get to play with the familiar, but in a whole new configuration,” Kajese-Bolden continues. She’s eager to see how the audience reacts to seeing how the Coca-Cola Stage has been transformed. “We are approaching this stylistically in a way that one might for a smaller space, so that excitement is making this gorgeous vast space feel intimate and safe.”

“There might be a dance break that involves the whole audience,” Booth adds. “I’m not saying there is, I’m saying there might be…”

Kajese-Bolden and Booth also got to play with their own sense of familiarity in codirecting the show. Both had co-directed before but were hesitant to try it again; especially with such a quirky, off-the-wall show. However, once they dove into the project, they both swiftly changed their minds.

“To have this brilliant brain/heart/ visionary partner in the work of conceiving this event has been pretty glorious,” says Booth.

“It’s an experiment in working at the top of our game without having to sacrifice meaningful events [and] relationships in our lives that so often get sidelined when you are working on a show,” KajeseBolden adds. “We also said our number one rule is to keep the joy meter on high, which is the only way we want to work after a pretty stressful couple of years.”

Coming full circle to that everpresent topic of joy, the codirectors also hope the audience will walk away from the show with “a feeling of communal connection and a deeper engagement with their own purpose and passions,” says Kajese-Bolden.

Booth agrees, adding, “Make it count. Right here and right now; make it matter.” | 11


When Branden Jacobs-Jenkins, Everybody ’s playwright, was asked about his playwriting process in an interview, he emphasized his “investment in the tradition we’re writing in. Theatre is an old thing. It’s thousands of years old. TV isn’t. Film isn’t. We’re doing a really old thing.” In such an old art form, it’s practically impossible to tell an entirely new story. After all, that’s what genres are — a way to define humans telling slightly varied versions of the same story again and again.

Jacobs-Jenkins has welcomed the opportunity to use historical text as the basis for a modern story. During the opening monologue of Everybody, it is revealed that Everyman, the play that directly inspired Branden Jacobs-Jenkins to write Everybody, is a 15th century morality play. Although Everybody explains that a “morality play” is simply a play with a moral, theatre scholar John Payne Collier defines the genre as “a drama, the characters of which are allegorical, abstract, or symbolical, and the story of which is intended to convey a lesson for the better conduct of human life.”

This definition is a bit stuffy, and the realistic applications of morality plays are more nuanced. When a play is performed on stage, life is breathed into these allegorical figures and they are no longer abstract concepts that exist on a page; instead, they are a part of the real world that are more capable of making people understand the consequences of their actions. Although morality plays do teach a moral, they do it in a way that makes people realize how applicable to everyday life seemingly far-away concepts like death are.

Although Everybody defines Everyman as a morality play, the opening stage directions state that it is a “treatise in the manner of a morality play.” This distinction, although small, insinuates that Everyman was not created to be performed. In fact, the play has no record of being performed until 1901 — 500 years after it was translated into English. Instead, many historians have theorized that Everyman was written as a religious text, to be read and to help people understand that they can — and will — be confronted with death, so living a life of sin is not doing anyone any favors.

Everyman’s moral is explicitly Catholic, which makes sense, as Catholicism was the dominant sect of European Christianity during the 15th century. The moral can be loosely understood as follows: many people are leading lives of sin, forgetting | @alliancetheatre
12 | programhighlight

about God, and not doing the Corporal Acts of Mercy, such as giving to the poor or feeding the hungry. However, all that anyone needs to do is confess, repent, and scourge/ punish themselves, and their good deeds will then be strong enough to speak for them in front of God, and allow them to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

To amplify this moral, God specifically asks Death for a man who has forgotten that God is almighty in favor of worshiping his own riches, who happens to be Everyman.

Although Everyman’s strict Catholic moral is a product of a society with a unifying belief, the essence of the story is one that every society can relate to: How do we deal with our imminent death? JacobsJenkins took this question one step forward: How do we deal with our imminent death in today’s secular, diverse society?

Of course, taking any mention of repentance and confession out of the script was the first step in making Everyman modern. However, another feat that JacobsJenkins accomplished with this play was an exploration of the limits of theatre and casting: the lottery system. During each performance, Everybody and all of the allegorical figures are chosen by chance, in a lottery system. There are 120 different casting combinations that can be made from the 5 actors that will be affected by the lottery.

Not only does this system of chance force each actor — and audience member — to confront their own mortality, but it also illustrates the beauty of theatre. The production will be different every time it’s onstage, just as life and death are different for every person. Everybody holds a mirror to the audience in both the actors’ dialogue and the mechanics of the show.

Theatre may be an old thing with the same basic stories being told again and again, but finding ways to shape these stories around an ever-changing world is what keeps art alive.

“Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. Everybody’s gonna die. Come watch TV?”

This quote, spoken in a bout of existentialist frustration by Rick and Morty character Morty Smith, is a bleak but also gripping message. He says it in the wake of his sister, Summer, realizing she was an unplanned pregnancy that changed the trajectory of their parents’ lives. But hey, it’s true, right? Maybe Morty would like Everybody as a play because of it. Because of the truth that we don’t pick our parents, our destiny is up to us and what we make of our situations. And spoiler alert: Everybody dies.

The cast of Everybody is randomized, the roles known by each actor, and the lottery is performed every show in order to notify them of who they will be embodying for that performance. It’s random, and it’s spur of the moment, but so is death, isn’t it?

Our lives are a blank canvas that we are tasked with painting. Which virtues will help us fill the white space with color, and which ones do we neglect, leaving them on the palette? Do we call on our Strength too much, leaving Emotions behind? Or maybe Love saturates the canvas, and Time is pushed to the side. It is up to each of us, at the end of the day, to realize what legacy we want to leave on the world, and at the end of the day, how the world will reflect on each of us.

So, perhaps, this all means we should take a step back, and enjoy the little things more. Life and Death are scary things to think about, let’s talk about fun things instead. Go on that walk with the friend you haven’t seen in years. Pick that hobby up that you’ve been pondering for a while. Tell the people in your life that you’re grateful for them. Because, while Morty was harsh, he might have had a point. Sometimes, you just gotta watch TV. VIRTUES: WHAT MAKES MEANING OF WHAT MATTERS IN LIFE? | @alliancetheatre

Everybody is a happy person, a free person, a person who believes nothing but the best lies ahead. Then Death comes calling, and Everybody must go on a journey to find what has had lasting significance in their lifetime. Inspired by the 15th century play Everyman, Everybody explores the meaning of life and the roles we play along the way.

As a young seminary student, I can recall many days in the (no longer standing) Bishop Hall of the Candler School of Theology waxing poetic about the meaning of biblical texts. I can remember debating not only varying interpretations of some of the most commonly recited scripture but also the validity, scarcity, and origins of the texts themselves.

Though we had varying beliefs of the words on those pages, essentially what drove our discussions and ultimately our very presence at this place of higher learning was our quest to understand not only the meaning of these words but the implications of these words on our lived experience and the implications of these words in the afterlife.

In this funny, witty, surprising, sobering, and thought-provoking play, it feels that the playwright has distilled the entire three years I spent pursuing a Master of Divinity degree into less than two hours and, considering the price of a theatre ticket, did so for tens of thousands of dollars less!

In such a divisive world where we struggle to find common ground on much of anything, it is refreshing to come together for an amazing ride exploring one of the very few things we all share in common… the inevitability of death.

Those big questions that I explored as a student and that are creatively presented in this play spilled into the work that I do to this day. In fact, it was in part my preoccupation with these very questions that attracted me to the position at the Emory University Center for Ethics where today, 15 years later in a building shared with (believe it or not) the Candler School of Theology, I direct the Ethics & the Arts Program. | @alliancetheatre
24 | yourstoryyourstage

The Ethics & the Arts Program is centered on the belief that the production of art, its role in public conversation, its preservation, and its presentation all provoke us to confront ethical challenges, sometimes in startling new ways. We are committed to inspiring innovative thought by using creative expression to elevate moral discourse. Since the inception of the Ethics & the Art Program our longstanding partnership with the Alliance Theatre to create space for deeper engagement with the audience has always been central to our work within the program.

On a more personal note, this play is coming right on the heels of the one year anniversary of the passing of my father. It is without doubt that reflections about life and death have been very present on my mind. What this play helped me explore was not only what might happen after we die but, more importantly, in what ways do we want to live. It challenges us to question not just what we want to do for a living, but who do we want to be while we are yet living.

My dad provided a great model for me to personally grapple with and strive to live into these big questions. My work in the community, at the Center for Ethics, and in partnership with the Alliance allow me to feel like I may in fact be carrying that out. And this play invites us ALL an opportunity to step outside of ourselves into the shared world of Everybody and begin the process of exploring those questions for ourselves… together.
