Every Brilliant Thing

by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

Ten years on from the play’s debut, a new production of the smash-hit comes to Roundabout, directed by Duncan Macmillan and performed by Jonny Donahoe.

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid. She finds it hard to be happy. So you make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.

Ice cream.
Water fights.
Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV.
The colour yellow.
People falling over.

A play about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.
