EVERY BRILLIANT THING by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe

A play that celebrates life and underscores the importance of human connection.

Could you name a hundred things that make life wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? In response to their mother's attempted suicide, our narrator starts a list of things to live for. From "Ice Cream" to "the Alphabet", EVERY BRILLIANT THING shines a hilarious and compassionate light on dark corners of the human condition.

Told in collaboration with the audience, EVERY BRILLIANT THING reminds us of the life-affirming joy and wonder that exists alongside the pain and strife.

Starring: Rob Karney
