Every Brilliant Thing

Written by Duncan Miller with Johnny Donahoe

Can you name a hundred things that are wonderful? A thousand? How about a million? When he was 7, a boy's mother attempted suicide. In response, he started a list of things to live for. As he grows up, the list takes on a life of its own. From "Ice Cream" (#1 on his list) to "The Alphabet" (#999,997), Every Brilliant Thing shines a hilarious and compassionate light on dark corners of the human condition. Written by Duncan MacMillan (1984, Lungs), and performed by Dale Monroe (The Barn's The Dining Room, All My Sons) this on one-night-only special event is a play about depression, resilience, and the lengths we will go to for those we love - Told in collaboration with the audience.
