Every Brilliant Thing

EVERY BRILLIANT THING EVERY BRILLIANT THING
You’re six years old. Mum’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.

This new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love was commissioned by Paines Plough, one of the UK’s leading theater companies devoted to new writing. The show, which had a 16-week run Off-Broadway in 2014, “may be the funniest show about depression you’ve ever seen…about finding reasons to live rather than reasons to die. And those reasons can be as minute as wearing a cape and as big as falling in love.” (New York Post)
