EVERY BRILLIANT THING By Duncan MacMillan with Johnny Donahoe EVERY BRILLIANT THING is the story of a seven year old girl whose mother is in the hospital because ‘she finds it hard to be happy.’ To cheer up her clinically depressed mother, the girl starts a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world, everything worth living for. Narrated by the now 37 year old woman, the play “finds a perfect balance between conveying the struggles of life, and celebrating all that is sweet in it.” (The Independent – London) Directed by Edward James, the play stars Terri Baier (Dorian Gray, Coaster Theater; Stupid F***ing Bird, 1015 Theater) as the narrator who gets lots of help from the audience. Co-written by a standup comedian, The Guardian (UK) calls it “one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression.”
