Everyman is a morality play written in the 16th Century by Christpher Marlowe.
God sends Death to ask Everyman for an account of his life, as a tally of good and bad deeds. Everyman tries to get other characters such as ‘Fellowship’ and material ‘Goods’ to join him on his journey, but he is forced to realise that they are no help to him.
In the end, Knowledge directs him to make a Confession, and he gains forgiveness. But when he dies, Everyman is left only with his Good Deeds to help him get to Heaven.
