HBAF 2020 Presents - Everyman

Pufflett Road, Havelock North

From the expansive hub of London’s National Theatre, to Heretaunga, Hawke’s Bay Youth Theatre transplants this new, energetic, and visceral production of Carol Ann Duffy’s Everyman.

Originally the cornerstone of 15th century English morality plays, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s re-imagining of the script brings a startling relevance to modern life. Rhyme, rhythm and colourful cadences create an exciting and enticing web around 21st century culture.

Alongside the direction of Peter Cottrell and the co-direction and movement direction of Champa J. Maciel, the actors of Hawke’s Bay Youth Theatre bring this story roaring and rumbling into 2020. Amidst climate strikes, social unrest and pandemic, young voices are itching to be heard, and the incredible actors of Hawke’s Bay’s own youth company tenaciously grasp this story with maturity and immense energy.

From open to close, the audience will be swept on a dynamic and intimate journey that questions values of belonging, of family, of the individual, and of accountability. It is an experience that leaves viewers moved and breathless. Everyman is a heartfelt, physical and utterly unapologetic exploration of the forces that have shaped the world around us.
