Flannery O'Connor was working on Everything That Rises Must Converge at the time of her death. This collection is an exquisite legacy from a genius of the American short story, in which she scrutinizes territory familiar to her readers: race, faith, and morality. The stories encompass the comic and the tragic, the beautiful and the grotesque; each carries her highly individual stamp and could have been written by no one else.

Influenced by Alfred Hitchcock, Gertrude Stein, The Wooster Group, and Richard Foreman, John Jesurun began to produce his own theatrical pieces in the early 1980s. Everything That Rises Must Converge was first performed at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis and then at the Kitchen in New York in 1990. Mel Gussow, writing in the New Times, observed that the language of the play was complex, moving "backwards, forward and sideways," but "...what holds the audience's attention is the ingenious style of presentation. While we are still trying to correlate the barrage of words and of live video figures, some of whom appear to be talking to themselves, the rear wall suddenly swings to a perpendicular, revealing an entirely different audience sitting on bleachers on the opposite side of the stage. In a mirror reversal, they have been watching our actors on monitors and our monitor-actors on stage."
