You’re six years old. Mom’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for.

#1) Ice cream. #2) Kung Fu movies. #3) Burning things. #4) Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. #5) Construction cranes. #6) Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.

Every Brilliant Thing is a surprising and immersive theatrical experience speaks openly about depression, mental illness and suicide. With poignant humor and joy, the production takes the audience on a journey through grief, healing, falling in love, and rediscovering all that life has to give.
