You're six years old. Mum's in hospital. Dad says she's 'done something stupid'. She finds it hard to be happy. You make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.
This is award-winning British playwright Duncan Macmillan’s poignant starting point for 'Every Brilliant Thing', a funny and surprisingly uplifting show about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.
From UK theatre company Paines Plough, 'Every Brilliant Thing' has had acclaimed seasons in the UK, New York, Perth and New Zealand. We were delighted to support the show's return to Australia during the Adelaide Festival in March 2017.
'Every Brilliant Thing' was part of our biennial Edinburgh Showcase in 2015. We caught up with Duncan Macmillan and Paines Plough's George Perrin when they were in Edinburgh.
