Chris Goode will direct the English premiere of Jo Clifford’s 2010 hit play – which was sparked following the death of her wife and the sudden death of her mother when she was younger. 


Every One is a take on a Medieval morality play titled Everyman and will arrive at the Battersea Arts Centre from the 2nd to the 19th March.

Acclaimed when it was originally produced by the Royal Lyceum theatre in Edinburgh in 2010, Clifford’s play centres around an average family with everyday concerns until the sudden death of mother and wife Mary, leaving her husband and two children to find their own ways of understanding and coping as she journeys into the afterlife.

Jo Clifford is most recently associated with The Gospel According to Jesus Queen of Heaven, her one woman show featuring a transgender Jesus coming back to the world. She is an Edinburgh based writer, performer, poet and teacher with about 80 plays to her name.

The cast will include Chris Goode and Company regulars Angela Clerkin,Michael Fenton Stevens  and Nick Finegan alongside emerging artist Nicola Weston (who played in double bill with Ponyboy Curtis in The Yard’s NOW15), film and TV actress Eileen Nicholas, and shunt’s Nigel Barrett as Death. 

Every One will appear at the Battersea Arts Centre from the 2nd to the 19th March.
