COMING NEXT: EVERY BRILLIANT THING • TICKETS
A small boy is worried about Mom. She is very sad. Dad says she has forgotten about all the reasons there are to be happy. So the little boy starts a list (in crayon) to remind her of every brilliant thing in life: “Ice Cream,” “Rollercoasters,” “Star Trek!” As he grows, so does the list, taking on a life of its own, until it changes everything.... A remarkable, uplifting play about a boy growing up living with a family member’s depression.
“Heart-wrenching, hilarious, and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” — The Guardian
