Every Brilliant Thing

Thu 22 Sep 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 12+ (limited seating)

By Duncan Macmillan
With Jonny Donahoe
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. A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Based on true and untrue stories.

Due to limited capacity this performance will only be selling tickets at the box office on the night of the event.

Every Brilliant Thing is supported by Anne McMeehan and Jim Roberts and was developed with the support of nabokov and the Jersey Arts Trust.

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious…possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see”
