Every Brilliant Thing

Studio Theatre
1501 14th St. NW Washington

From ice cream to kung fu movies to laughing so hard you shoot milk out of your nose, in Every Brilliant Thing, a young boy attempts to ease his mother's depression by creating a list of all the best things in the world. Through adulthood, as the list of things worth living for grows, he learns the deep significance it has on his own life. This interactive one-man show, created by acclaimed playwright Duncan MacMillan (1984) and comedian Jonny Donahoe, has become a worldwide hit for its poignant but funny celebration of the little things that matter in life. You might just be inspired to start your own list after seeing it at the Studio Theatre in Washington, D.C.

"...BRILLIANT THING at Studio Theatre takes an audience of individuals and transforms them, in 65 short minutes, into a collective. It is theatre in its purest, most primal, form, and it's hilarious to boot. Described by The Guardian as "one of the funniest shows you'll ever see about depression" EVERY BRILLIANT THING is as compassionate as it is hilarious. The first in Studio Theatre's Showroom series-a curated performance series in the summertime (with spirits)-EVERY BRILLIANT THING is warm, intimate, and inventive."

"...Director Jason Loewith acknowledges the split between the somber message of the play and its upbeat delivery. He keeps Strain’s basic pace very fast, so that when there is total silence or an inability to speak (as in Strain’s inability to say the word “depression”) it hits home with tremendous force."
