  3. Every Brilliant Thing

You're six years old and your mom's in the hospital because, as your dad says, she "finds it hard to be happy." You start making a list for her of all the wonderful things in life. No. 1 "ice cream" No. 6 "rollercoasters" No. 517 "Knowing someone well enough to get them to check your teeth for broccoli" Every Brilliant Thing is a heart wrenching and hilarious one-man play told with the help of the audience. Together, they learn how to achieve hope by focusing on the smallest miracles of life.

Ages: Every Brilliant Thing is recommended for ages 10 and up. Children under 5 are not permitted in the theatre.
