Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour.
This international sensation throws audience members into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies following one person's life in the shadow of mental illness. From the broad #4 'The Colour Yellow' to the detailed #9998 'Watching someone watch your favourite film', this joyous and intimate work shows us the miracles in life's minutiae.
A deeply personal story about a societal issue that has touched us all in one way or another, but told in a heart warmingly hilarious way. A contemporary theatre experience that allows the audience to lean in and sometimes even participate, whilst filling their hearts with hope and affirmation of life.
Every Brilliant Thing is play about everything worth living for - from ice cream, to staying up late to watch TV, to the music of Ray Charles. It’s a responsible and hilarious way of talking about depression. With the help of the audience, it tells the story of a boy's response to his mum's suicide.
Affirming and uplifting, the play reaches into the soul of the audience, connecting and resonating in ways that hold and carry them from beginning to end and strikes the perfect balance between hurt and hope, using humour to have the hardest conversations.
