Every Brilliant Thing

Written by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour. This multiple award-winning 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.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This is a must-see show; one that will probably be talked about for years, and likely a theatrical experience you will never forget." - ArtsHub


Hey,

Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. So I’m working on a list.

#1. Ice cream
#2. Water fights

Everything that’s brilliant about the world

#5. Things with stripes
#25. Wearing a cape

Everything that’s worth living for.

#314 The Way Ray Charles sings the word ‘You’
#319. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out of your nose
#823. Skinny Dipping

I’m going to try to get to one million

With Love Text Small
