Every Brilliant Thing

January 24 @ 8:00 am - February 2 @ 5:00 pm

Written by Duncan MacMillan

with Jonny Donahoe

Directed by Steven Schipper

in association with the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre

This wonderful, interactive play charts the lengths we go to for those we love. With his mother in hospital, a young boy constructs a list of little things to help her find a way to be happy. In this raw, real and intimate piece of theatre, what begins as a naive way of dealing with tragedy becomes a life-long reminder that joy can be found in the seeming insignificant- that the unremarkable can, in fact, become something quite remarkable.

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious… possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” – The Guardian
