Every Brilliant Thing

By Duncan Macmillan & Jonny Donahoe

Directed by Andrew Carlson

Artwork created by Molly Lyn

Ice cream.  Water fights. Things with stripes…a list of everything beautiful about the world. Everything worth living for.

If you were to make a list of things that make life worth living, what would be at the top? Ice cream? Family? The even numbered Star Trek films? With whom would you share your list?

For our character in this uplifting solo performance, it’s their mother. This surprising and immersive theatrical experience speaks openly about depression, mental illness, and suicide. With poignant humor and joy, Every Brilliant Thing takes us on a journey through grief, healing, falling in love, and (re)discovering all that life has to give.


Who you should bring

Anyone with whom you can both cry and snort-laugh.
