The Everyman theatre opened in 1964 in an area of Liverpool established as having a political environment, and now has a reputation for showcasing ground braking productions which tackle the most difficult of subjects.
In 2000, the theatre joined forces with the Playhouse to become Liverpool & Merseyside Theatres Trust.
Recently the Everyman went under an almost complete overhaul. In March 2014, after over ten years of planning and construction, the new incarnation of the Everyman was opened to the public. Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night was chosen as the opening night’s production, directed by Artistic Director Gemma Bodinetz. The new theatre was awarded the RIBA Stirling Prize. Becoming the first theatre in the UK and the first building in Liverpool to win British Architecture’s most prestigious award.
