Every Man Jack of You

About the Play Every Man Jack of You

Everyman Jack of You is an overture to the series. Jack, a recurring character, abandons his first wife, leaving his Oklahoma home for a drunken spree in Vegas. He travels against the backdrop of the NATO bombings in Bosnia, conflated with the Tulsa race riot of 1921. His increasingly dissolute efforts at mindless release never succeed in drowning out the complexity of the political world (pushed into his consciousness by various avatars of Julia Caesar/Caesar’s Palace), or in rendering him innocence of his place in context with historical events. Clair, his wife, increasingly politicized, breaks free.

Director: Krzysztof Garbaczewski & Marcin Cecko, Warsaw, Poland
