Everybody explores the most universal of truths: you can’t take it with you, but everybody tries. When the character Somebody faces imminent death, the choice between Friendship, Love, Kinship, Cousinship, and Stuff, is complicated. Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins adds to the mess by asking the core company of actors be cast by lottery every night, letting fate decide the journey as they play out this new riff on a 15th Century morality tale.
                                                
Does that mean that every actor memorizes the whole play? Yes, it does. Does it mean that there are 120 possible actor combinations that might perform Everybody? That's right.
