California Shakespeare Theater’s latest production is both something new and something very old. “Everybody” is Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ new adaptation of the 15th-century English morality play “The Summoning of Everyman” (or really “Somonyng,” because that’s how old school it is). Jacobs-Jenkins is the inventive and challenging playwright of “An Octoroon,” which Berkeley Rep did last year, itself a wildly metatheatrical adaptation of an 1859 melodrama. A 2018 Pulitzer finalist that premiered off-Broadway last year, “Everybody” is remarkably faithful to “Everyman” in its basic story. God sends Death to fetch somebody who represents Everybody to journey to the afterlife for the final reckoning. Everybody tries to get somebody to come along to help, but all the people and things that seemed so reliable and important in life offer nothing but disappointment.
