SYNOPSIS

1. Ice cream, 2. Water fights, 3. Things with stripes, 4. Christopher Walken’s voice, 5. Rollercoasters. In Every Brilliant Thing, a young boy attempts to ease his mother’s depression by creating a list of everything worth living for. Through adulthood, as the list grows, he learns the deep significance it has on his own life. Every Brilliant Thing is a very funny and moving new play about the lengths we go to for those we love. It is an immersive experience, as members of the audience are called upon to help tell the story. You will want to see it more than once!
