Every Brilliant Thing is a remarkable play, full of love and grief and coping. It has a magical element of audience engagement, which instantly creates a community among an audience of strangers.
It goes like this: You’re seven years old. Mom’s in the 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. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling.
