Every Brilliant Thing
Wed 31 May & Thu 1 June at 7.30pm 

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.

A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

Based on true and untrue stories.

EVERY BRILLIANT THING is supported by Anne McMeehan and Jim Roberts and was developed with the support of nabokov and the Jersey Arts Trust.
