Every Brilliant Thing
By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe
Every Brilliant Thing strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter as it recounts a life lived in the shadow of suicide. In this acclaimed show, a young person attempts to cure their mother's depression by creating a list of the best things in the world. The list grows as they progress from childhood and adolescence to college and marriage, but when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to them in ways that it couldn't be for their mother.
