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. The play was made into a film in 1961.
The motive is used by many later authors; see Everyman.
