EVERY BRILLIANT THING

EVERY BRILLIANT THING

By Duncan Macmillan
With Jonny Donahoe

April 2–April 26, 2020
Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre
Finding joy in life’s intricacies

What do you do when you’re seven and mum finds it hard to be happy? Start making a list—ice cream, water fights, rollercoasters—a reminder to her of every brilliant thing worth living for. And then never stop adding to it. #315 The smell of old books. #994 Hairdressers who listen to what you want. #2000 Coffee. #9996 Sex. This unusually funny show about depression and love lets the list take on a life of its own.
