WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Could you name a hundred things that make life wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? A seven-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" (No. 1 on the list) to "the alphabet" (No. 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, those watching become custodians of the list, co-conspirators in the child's plot to hold back the darkness, and members of an ensemble that creates the evening's story.
