Every Brilliant Thing

August 4 - 21

Firehall Theatre


An Uplifting Theatrical Gem

Ice cream, the smell of old books, Marlon Brando… As a mother battles chronic depression, a child writes a list of everything in the world that makes life worth living. As the child grows, the list grows too, eventually becoming an epic chronicle of life’s small joys. This life-affirming solo piece is hysterically funny and deeply moving. An interactive experience unlike anything you’ve seen before.
