Every Brilliant Thing
August 11 @ 11:30 pm - August 13 @ 11:30 pm
Thursday – Saturday, August 9 – 11 at 7:30pm, come to the newly renovated Howmet Playhouse for the production of “Every Brilliant Thing” by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe and directed by Natalie Carmolli.
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 play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
