USD Theatre will present Everyman The USD Department of Theatre will present Everyman, an anonymous medieval morality play, March 27, 28, and April 4, 5, and 6 at 8 p.m. in the Arena Theatre of the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts.
The plot is based on the struggle of the vices and virtues for the soul of man in the moment of death. When Death summons Everyman to a
general reckoning before God, Everyman seeks to bring Fellowship, Kindred, Cousin, Goods, Strength, Discretion, Beauty, and Five Wits with him. They desert him, however, and salvation doesn't present itself until Everyman dons the robes of contrition and does penance.
As Everyman discovers, only Good Deeds accompanies one to the grave.
Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for senior citizens (62+) and youth (high school and below), and $1 for USD students with ID. Reservations can be made by calling the USD Theatre box office at (605) 677-5400.
