Every Brilliant Thing


AboutShows & PricingArtistsMediaReviews & PressDiscover

by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe

A hilarious and compassionate play about resilience and the lengths we will go to for those we love—told in collaboration with the audience.

Could you name a hundred things that make life wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? When he was 7, a boy  mother attempted suicide. In response, he started a list of things to live for. As he grows up, the list takes on a life of its own. From “Ice Cream” (#1 on the list) to “the Alphabet” (#999,997), Every Brilliant Thing shines a hilarious and compassionate light on dark corners of the human condition.

A play about resilience, and the lengths we will go to for those we love–told in collaboration with the audience.

“Five minutes into [the play], most of the audience had already cried…and had laughed aloud. By the end of the show, the entire room seemed to be infused with a spirit of camaraderie.” -DC Metro Theatre Arts

“[A] heart-wrenching, hilarious play…One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” -The Guardian

“In the face of great loss, a real effort of will is required to recall why it’s worth continuing with life. That will is the force that animates Every Brilliant Thing and keeps it afloat for the captivating hour of its duration.”
-NY Times
