★★★★★ “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
Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour that reaches into the soul of the audience, connecting and resonating in ways that holds and carries them from beginning to end.Every Brilliant Thing is a play about everything worth living for – from ice cream, to staying up late to watch TV, to the music of Ray Charles. It’s a responsible and hilarious way of talking about depression.
With the help of the audience, who are thrown into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies, it tells the story of a boy’s response to his mum’s suicide.
This award-winning play strikes the perfect balance between hurt and hope, using humour to have the hardest conversations.
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.
