By Jo Clifford
Directed by Mark Thomson
Profound. Uplifting. Moving. Beautiful.
Moving drama. An everyday family finds there are still reasons for hope after they're forced to live through heartbreaking tragedy.
Jo Clifford, creator of stunning and critically acclaimed stage versions of Anna Karenina and Faust, presents her newest story to Lyceum audiences. Every One is a beautiful and poetic look at how ordinary people deal with extraordinary tragedy.
An everyday family, Joe, Mary, Kevin and Mazz, are at the centre of this tale. They are somehow aware their lives are being witnessed by a theatre full of people. But with nothing to mark them out as particularly unusual they are slightly puzzled by the attention. All of this changes when Death comes calling.
Plunged suddenly into a situation where the things they considered ‘real‘ can no longer be relied upon, Joe, Mary, Kevin and Mazz must reassess their lives. Their different perspectives on life and on what it means to ‘live’ are altered forever – and the things that really matter are made painfully clear.
Every One is a beautifully moving story that will resonate with those who have lost someone they love.
Mark Thomson (Confessions of a Justified Sinner, Curse of the Starving Class) and Artistic Director of the Lyceum directs Clifford’s wonderful new play.
