Every Brilliant Thing is the story of a 7 year old boy who writes a list of everything brilliant about the world as a gift for his mother, the first time she tries to commit suicide. The story continues as he grows up and his mother attempts to take her life a number of times.
“I wasn’t around for the final attempt. The list hadn’t stopped her, hadn’t saved her. Of course it hadn’t.”
“I realised how much the list changed the way I see the world.”
A beautiful play that made audiences laugh out loud whilst giving them an insight into depression and suicide; something that is so pertinent in our modern society. Audience members were deeply moved by the story.
