Jedermann is a 1911 adaptation by the Austrian playwright Hugo von Hofmannsthal of a late 15th-century English morality play The Somonyng of Everyman (The Summoning of Everyman), usually referred to simply as Everyman. Jedermann has been performed annually at the Salzburg Festival since 1920.[1] The play was made into a film in 1961.

The motive is used by many later authors; see Everyman.
