Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe
Kristina Brändén Whitaker
Gothenburg English Studio Theatre presents Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan, a touching, funny and life-affirming play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
”You're seven years old. Mum's in hospital.
Dad says she's 'done something stupid'. She finds it hard to be happy.
You start to make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world:
1. Ice cream
2. Water fight
3. People falling over
5. Laughing so hard you shoot milk through your nose."
As the boy grows into a man the list evolves too. Over 30 years and thousands of entries later, he discovers that the list might even help save himself.
★★★★ "Heart-wrenching, hilarious...possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop." - The Guardian
