12 Peers Continues Eighth Season With 2018 Pulitzer Prize Nominated Play

12 Peers Theater continues their eighth main stage season with Everybody, a modern spin on the classic Everyman. Everybody, selected from the cast by lottery at each performance makes an epic journey to death, while searching for someone or something to validate his life. With 120 possible casting combinations, each performance will be truly unique.

Artistic Director Vince Ventura says, "We are both honored and excited to bring this experimental Pulitzer Prize nominated play to the greater Pittsburgh area. It's rare to find a play that so fully embodies our mission statement, and we think this is a great example."
