Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan Macmillan
with Jonny Donahoe
September 6 - September 16Buy Tickets
A seven year old comes home from school to learn that Mom is in the hospital. Dad says “she’s done something stupid.” The kid begins to create a list for Mom. A list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.
1. Ice cream
2. Water fights
3. Staying up past your bedtime to watch TV …
As time passes and the list grows, what began as a naive
attempt to make Mom happy becomes an epic chronicle
of life’s little wonders. A tribute to the irrepressible
resilience inside all of us and the capacity to find delight
in the everyday, Every Brilliant Thing is a funny, clever, and
surprisingly uplifting play about the lengths we go to for
those we love. It might be just what we need right now.
