Everyman & The Second Shepherd's Play
A double feature: two plays for the price of one! Everyman, a representation of all human kind, is suddenly called to give a reckoning before God for the life he has lived. Inviting mystical characters such as Fellowship, Good Deeds and Knowledge to accompany him on his pilgrimage, Everyman soon realizes that in the end, when he stands before God, all he has left to offer is his good deeds. This is a rare reading of this 15th century masterpiece, considered by many to be the greatest morality plays of all time.
In The Second Shepherd's Play, adapted by Ian Borden, a group of shepherds attempt to rescue a missing sheep from the clutches of a rapscallion sheep-stealing couple who will go to great lengths to conceal their thievery. Little to do the Shepherds know that a holy announcement from the Heavenly hosts is forthcoming that will change their lives for ever.
