A kind of coming-of-age dream play, Every Man explores the circular patterns of young love and abandonment. 15-year-old Savannah is so fascinated by the stars, she speaks to them. Her mother, Wendy, is concerned about Wendy's pipe-dreamer behavior and her daughter's growing curiosity regarding boys. When a young man, Peter, finally shows up for Savannah, Wendy confronts the young couple, only to find an odd familiarity with Peter. He alludes to a past they may or may not have had, almost romancing Wendy again, but the painful memory of young heartache causes Wendy to push him away. She is left crying to the stars.
