ABOUT

Could you name a hundred things that make life wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? A 7 year-old child confronted by his mother's attempted suicide makes a list of things to live for that grows from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. From "Ice Cream" (#1 on the list) to "the Alphabet" (#999,997), Every Brilliant Thing elicits as much laughter as it does tears in creating its catalogue of gratitude with a unique theatrical style. In this remarkable one-person show, the audience becomes a custodian of the list, a co-conspirator in the plot to hold-back the darkness, and members of an ensemble that creates the evening's story, curling the audience in its generous embrace.
