Freemen's debut of Everyman at Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Freemen’s Theatre Company, as part of the City of London Freemen’s school, takes on a contemporary version of the 15th Century medieval morality play ‘Everyman’.
TicketsUnder the direction of David Lingard, the play follows the eponymous Everyman as he attempts to find a companion who will go with him on his pilgrimage to God. Summoned, in order to give an account of his life, Everyman desperate, and with the weight of the whole of humanity on his shoulders, seeks to find one positive aspect in a life which has been filled with greed, selfishness and lust. He searches and pursues help in the things he values most; riches, family, friends, beauty, strength and knowledge, but in the end, there is only one good deed which can help him.
The play, which is narrated, sung and performed with slapstick humour by five undertakers, delves into the question of mortality and a man’s final day on Earth. The episodic structure allows rest bite for the audience to digest and consider their Morality. After all, there is only one certainty in life -Death.
