Every Brilliant Thing
A comedy by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe
Directed by Argo Thompson
November 24 - December 9, 2018
A story of the lengths we will go to for those we love.
You’re six years old. Mom’s in the 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 play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
Note: Every Brilliant Thing is a special event at Left Edge Theatre and is available as an add-on to the season subscription package.
