John Allman ("John Everyman"?) is seemingly a piece by an anonymous.
The original text
Translations and adaptations
This title is listed by Ludwig Binge (1969, p.35) as one of the Dutch plays performed by the rederijkerskamer Onze Taal in the Pretoria in the period 1891-1898. However, no other reference to or text of such a play can be found, not even in the index to Binge's own book. The strange English/Dutch title does seem to suggest this may be a Dutch version of the story of Everyman, but nothing more is known.
