"The Somonyng of Everyman," usually referred to simply as "Everyman," is a late 15th-century morality play which uses allegorical characters to examine the question of Christian salvation and what Man must do to attain it. The premise is that the good and evil deeds of one's life will be tallied by God after death, as in a ledger book. The play is the allegorical accounting of the life of Everyman, who represents all mankind. In the course of the action, Everyman tries to convince other characters to accompany him in the hope of improving his account. All the characters are also allegorical, each personifying an abstract idea such as Fellowship, [material] Goods, and Knowledge. The conflict between good and evil is dramatised by the interactions between characters. Everyman eventually realizes that he is essentially alone, and that when you are brought to death and placed before God all you are left with is your own good deeds
