Cygnet Theater Presents: Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe
Directed by Rob Lutfy
You’re seven 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 worth living for: 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. 4. The color yellow. You leave it on her pillow. You know she read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of it’s own. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. What’s on your list?
“Every Brilliant Thing may be the funniest show about depression you’ve ever seen…” -New York Post
