Every Brilliant Thing is a touching and life-affirming play about depression.
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. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose
4. Construction Cranes
Twenty years and thousands of entries later, the list takes on a life of its own.
