About the play

Everyman’s Isle is a one act 30 minute religious parody of reality television shows based on the classic morality play The Summoning of Everyman.

The play takes place on the set of the reality TV Show “Everyman’s Isle”, as the Producer (God) sends the Critic (Death) to kick the star of the show Everyman off the island (the Earth). Everyman is stunned; he tries to find others who will go to the final corporate audit (the grave and judgment) with him. What follows is both fun and food for thought.

Includes a soup/salad/bread/desert supper and beverages
