If you knew you were going to die, what would you say about the life you lived? Everybody is a play about love. And death. And what happens, or might not happen, after. Playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (AppropriateAn OctoroonGloriaNeighbors) twists a Medieval tale to explore what might happen in our final act.

In Keck Theater 

Power. Lust. War. Peace? Follow the tyrannical yet charming Richard as he plots his way to the throne, with nothing in his path except those brave enough to block him. This provocative myth of greed and virtue reimagines Shakespeare's Richard III as an explosive, contemporary lyrical tale, hauntingly poetic and dramatically compelling. This production is sure to provoke your thoughts, and set your soul ablaze.
