Time Out says
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' new venture is a morality play with a twist
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Gloria was a massive hit at the Seymour Centre last year, and Kings Cross Theatre is no doubt hoping for similar success with Everybody, Jacobs-Jenkins’ Pulitzer Prize shortlisted morality play with a twist.
The twist is this: as life is determined by chance, so too is the play’s casting, with each character chosen from the cast by lottery at every performance. That’s 120 possible casting combinations, meaning a different show every night is almost guaranteed.
Directed by Gabriel Fancourt, who was last seen on stage in STC’s Cosi, it stars stage veteran Annie Byron alongside Sydney Theatre Award nominees Mansoor Noor (Omar and Dawn) and Kate Skinner (Anatomy of a Suicide), Caitlin Burley, Giles Gartrell-Mills, Isaro Kayitesi, Kate Bookallil, Michael Wood and Samm Ward.
