Every Brilliant Thing Tisdag 11 december – GEST
EVERY BRILLIANT THING
by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe
You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’.
She finds it hard to be happy. You start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world:
1. Ice cream
2. Water fight
3. People falling over
5. Laughing so hard you shoot milk through your nose
As the boy grows into a man the list evolves too. Over 30 years and thousands of entries later, he discovers that the list might even help save himself.
A touching, funny and life-affirming play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
“Every Brilliant Thing is unusual as it is a feel-good play about depression, transferred to Gothenburg’s English speaking stage with great sensitivity for the material, by the theatre’s Artistic Director Kristina Brändén Whitaker.”
“Heart-wrenching, hilarious…possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.”
Performed by Gary Whitaker
