WALES — Oak Hill High School’s Theatre in the Woods will present the one-act play “Everyman/Everywoman” in early March.

Written by Virginia Egermeier, the play is a modern adaptation of a 15th century allegorical sermon with the morality theme of Everyman (or Everywoman) suddenly facing death and given one hour to put his/her affairs in order.

As the countdown begins, the hero realizes that finding a tax shelter or an attractive date for dinner is no longer a pressing problem.

As Everyman attempts to find someone to accompany him on his final journey, he discovers the truth and short-lived worth of wordly goods.

Cast members include Elijah Washburn, Jack Champagne, Chris Jones, Kenyon Fraser, Kayla Gayton, Gwenyth Fraser, Isaac Fair, Matt McKeown, Emily McLean, Jacob Burnham, Patrick Caskin, Megan Rodrigue, Jessica Casey, Amanda Bloss, Patrick Austin, Zack Fisher, Karissa Panzino and Emily Baker.

Crew members are Cassidy Stevens, Chris Jones, Elijah Washburn, Declan Doyle, Matt McKeown, Emily Baker, Harley Lebel, Taylor Pelletier, Arielle Buteau, Sarah Carpenter, Jacob Kupfer, Marshall Larsen and Travis Burnham.

The play is directed by Lucy Rioux, with Helen Sherman as technical director.

“Everyman/Everywoman” will be staged at 7 p.m. Friday, March 4, and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 6. Donations will be accepted at the door.

The cast and crew will also present “Everyman/Everywoman” during the Maine Principals Association Regional Drama Festival on March 11-12, hosted by Leavitt High School.
