Every Brilliant Thing

Presented by Terrific New Theatre at Magic City Acceptance Center, Birmingham AL

Every Brilliant Thing

You’re six years old. Mom’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.

​Ice cream.
Water fights.
Staying up past your bedtime.
The color yellow.
Things with stripes.

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 play about depression
