Every Brilliant Thing - Y12 Studio Production

“If you live a long life and get to the end without ever once having felt crushingly depressed, then you probably haven’t been paying attention.”

Every Brilliant Thing

  1. Ice cream
  2. Water fights

777777. The prospect of dressing up as a Mexican wrestler

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.

There are so many versions of life. Theatre gives you an insight into those that are different to yours. Belinda Smith

Rehearsals began in August with 3 IB Diploma Theatre students; Daniel Battersby, Jack Bui and Will Manley working hard to understand the complexities of the story they were telling. They were able to perform in a reflective and engaging way, drawing the audience into this little boy’s world with clever audience participation. Unfortunately, Will Manley suffered an injury just four days before the first performance and sadly had to drop out. Dan and Jack stepped up and learnt all of Will’s lines going on to perform in three excellent shows.

I am incredibly proud of all three actors for helping bring this important message to an audience.
