ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Conversion does not take place through the recitation of pious formulas. This is the message that Christian Stückl places at the dramaturgical center of his revised version of Everyman (Jedermann). Jedermann's late insight of having missed the point of his own life becomes the turning point of his conversion – made possible and initiated by the trusting gaze of a woman. In this gaze, he sees that his life has not been judged summarily. In the end, that is the faith which is demanded of Jedermann: the conviction that God means well for him and his life, and will continue to mean well until the end. That the creator has placed his creature on a path, and will return him to that path, in spite of all his aberrations and mistakes. Conversion is more than turning around, it is returning home: arriving at one's own self, at the human core of being inherent in every person.
Josef Bruckmoser
