This modern riff on the 15th-century morality play Everyman follows Everybody (chosen from the cast by lottery at each performance) as they travel down a road toward life’s greatest mystery. Making its regional premiere in Chicago following its 2017 world premiere off-Broadway and becoming a 2018 Pulitzer Prize Finalist, playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins (Gloria, An Octoroon) bases his new play on a medieval morality play that instructs sinners on how to repent and seek redemption.

"...the Chicago summer theater fantasy: some company you never heard of stages a show you might never have noticed...and it kicks ass." — Chicago Reader
"The brilliance of Sohn’s performance (and one imagines the direction by Erin Shea Brady) is that we simultaneously feel her vulnerability and are curiously drawn to her almost as much as we are revolted by her behavior ... this new theater group is one to watch." — Chicago Splash Magazine
"Directed by Erin Shea Brady, I found this production to be as strong as the one I viewed at Steppenwolf some 20 years ago." — Around the Town Chicago
"...Brady stages the drama with skill and sound pacing ... No Stakes Theater Project makes an auspicious debut with this difficult play." — Chicago Theatre Review
"Actors need to have a voice. They are often asked to compromise their mental health or their safety or their integrity in order to get roles because the rate of competition is so high - particularly women and actors of color. When it's as easy as it is for directors and producers to abuse that power, we need to take a closer look at how we do things. We need to look at the limitations that this industry has set for us, to take the rules apart and put them back together differently." - Erin Shea Brady, Artistic Director
"Director Brady scales this production down to a small, intimate, sparsely dressed stage, taking full advantage of the spatial limitations of the set to blur the lines between what happens in the Kit Kat Club where Sally performs, the boarding house where Cliff takes a room and the rest of Berlin ... The overall effect is deliberately dream-like and unsettling. The audience is put a little bit on edge, and appropriately so. In spite of the distracting shabby glamour of the Kit Kat Club, Berlin is moments away from falling." — Chicagoland Musical Theatre
"[The cast makes] the story of doomed romance—and doomed progressive sexual politics—in the Weimar Republic’s final days disarmingly poignant." — Chicago Reader
