Production Snapshot

When he was six years old, our narrator’s mother was taken to the hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So he starts to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for: Ice cream, Kung Fu movies, Burning things, Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose, Construction cranes, Me. Soon, the list takes on a life of its own. Based on true and untrue stories, Every Brilliant Thing is a life-affirming story of how to achieve hope through focusing on the smallest miracles of life.
“[EVERY BRILLIANT THING] is sad, but it is also gloriously funny and exceptionally warm. It’s a show that spells out a little of what depression can do to people, but it also highlights the irrepressible resilience of the human spirit and the capacity to find delight in the everyday.” —Time Out London.
