Every Brilliant Thing at the Stephen Joseph Theatre

Every Brilliant Thing

The Edinburgh Festival and Off-Broadway hit Every Brilliant Thing is on tour to the Stephen Joseph Theatre in October.

Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre Company presents a heart-warming and heart-wrenching new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

Based on true and untrue stories, Every Brilliant Thing is written by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe and directed by George Perrin.

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.

"Heart-wrenching, hilarious...possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see." - The Guardian
