'“Every Brilliant Thing,” written by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe, is audience interactive theatre that will use humor to address the important subjects of mental health and suicide. It is not a show about suicide, but rather about the many brilliant things that are reasons for living. It is a message of hope.

“Every Brilliant Thing” is an uplifting and inspiring piece of theatre with a heartfelt message that is needed as we work together to advance beyond COVID-19.

It was first produced by Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre on June 28, 2013, at Ludlow Fringe Festival in England.
