Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan Macmillan
with Jonny Donahoe

March 4 - 21, 2020

You’re six years old. Mom’s in the 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. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime. 4. The color yellow. 5. Things with stripes. 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. A comedy about depression, and the lengths we will go to for those we love. “[A] heart-wrenching, hilarious play…One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” —The Guardian (UK)
