Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan MacMillan, with Jonny Donahoe | Directed by Sydney Parks Smith
Performed at Debut Theatre

“One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression.”
--The Guardian

1. Ice cream. 2. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime. 4. Things with stripes. 5. People falling over. Every Brilliant Thing is a one-woman tour-de-force about a child’s fierce, flawed attempt to make sense of adult unhappiness by creating a list of everything that makes life worth living. As we follow the child to adulthood, the list becomes a touchstone that shines a gentle theatrical light on the way sweetness and sorrow are both magnified by tragedy. Exceptionally warm, unflinchingly honest and gloriously funny, this jazz-inspired story captures the irrepressible resilience of the human spirit and the capacity to find delight in the everyday. 

Running Time: 70 minutes with no intermission
