Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe, directed by Erin Ortman

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious . . . possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” – The Guardian

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, and 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.
