EVERY BRILLIANT THING

By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

September 7 – October 15

You’re six years old. Your 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. 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.

TAP favorite Dan Klarer (ISAAC’S EYE, GREATER TUNA) leads the audience on an engaging journey of a son’s gift to his mother, to himself, and to the audience. A theatre experience-a life experience-to remember.

The Guardian calls it “One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression, and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.”
