Adaptation and optional songs by Virginia Egermeir. Musical arrangement by Eric Stonerook.

Cast: 4m., 5w., plus 6 or 10 either gender, doubling possible. The old morality play in which Everyman (or Everywoman) suddenly faces Death has been made into a new play in which the medieval speech gives way to the 20th-century English of a shopping center. Death gives Everyman one hour to put his affairs in order and, as the countdown begins, our hero realizes that finding a tax shelter or an attractive date for dinner are no longer pressing problems. Everyman first tries to find someone to accompany him on his journey. Of course, no one is willing to go along—except Good Deeds, an unselfish lady who has been widely regarded as impulsive and none too bright. All the allegorical figures—Beauty, Strength, Worldly Goods—come to life in their modern counterparts. Bare stage. Approximate Running Time: 35 minutes.
