Every Brilliant Thing

Every Brilliant Thing

Life is where you look for it.

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s done something stupid. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon the list will take on a life of its own…

An astonishing comedy about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.

By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahue
Directed by Stephan Waldschmidt
Featuring Jenna-Lee Hyde
