Every Brilliant Thing

Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe

Directed by Traci Sprague and starring Chris Hayhurst, this show brings a heartwarming, gorgeous, and self-aware look at the very serious topic of suicide and how it has a rippling long-lasting impression on the people left in the wake. But don’t worry, it's funny… This interactive play follows the life of a child who is affected by his mother’s attempts at ending her own life. It chronicles the journey that his family system makes as they navigate their pain, growth, and ultimately their attempt at rebirth. Hayhurst is charismatic as he tells a story that spans nearly three decades, performing with imagination and verve, charming audience members into acting opposite him, creating a rich feeling of community. Described as, “conversational (with emotions that) are raw and authentic. Audiences will find themselves laughing, crying, and waiting breathlessly to hear more.” Every Brilliant Thing asks the questions, “How do we intelligently and sensitively talk about death by suicide?” and “How do we navigate the loss in the aftermath?”

Don’t miss Every Brilliant Thing, the play that is sure to make you think and smile to yourself about the things we all recognize but may not always say about being human.
