When life reaches rock bottom, we grasp for hope. For a child, that hope can be as simple as listing the things worth living for every day: Ice cream. Water fights. Kung Fu movies! Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe’s one-person play recalls a childhood of despair, yet also filled with the resilience of the human spirit. London’s Guardian calls Every Brilliant Thing “[A] heart-wrenching, hilarious play…One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” Every Brilliant Thing is as part of the Shrader Workshop Series at Purdue University and in Belgium (March 6, 2020).
