“...One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” (The Guardian)

Live Arts is thrilled to welcome you back to live, volunteer-powered theater for EVERY BRILLIANT THING! In this gently humorous, uplifting solo show about depression and resilience, the audience becomes a part of the story. As the narrator makes a list of everything that's brilliant about the world, read one of these items aloud or perhaps step on stage to play a parent, school guidance, counselor, or the vet. Contributions from the audience make each performance a completely new, unforgettable experience.
