A Play We Love!
Dates: Tuesday 11 – Sun 16 Oct, 2016
Pavillion Theatre, Dun Laoghaire, Dublin.
This worldwide smash hit comes to Dublin for the first time as part of Dublin Theatre Festival. A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Based on true and untrue stories.
You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world.
Everything that’s worth living for.
1. Ice Cream
2. Kung Fu Movies
3. Burning Things
4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose
5. Construction cranes
You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling.
Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.
“Every Brilliant Thing may be the funniest show about depression you’ve ever seen…about finding reasons to live rather than reasons to die. And those reasons can be as minute as wearing a cape and as big as falling in love.” The New York Post
“Heart-wrenching, hilarious…possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.“ The Guardian
