OFF THE MAP: BYU INTERNATIONAL THEATRE FESTIVAL

EVERY BRILLIANT THING
A PAINES PLOUGH and PENTABUS THEATRE COMPANY PRODUCTION [ENGLAND]

By Duncan Macmillan
With Jonny Donahoe
Directed by George Perrin

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

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. 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.

This sold-out hit of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is a new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

Based on true and untrue stories.

Every Brilliant Thing is supported by Anne McMeehan and Jim Roberts and was developed with the support of nabokov and the Jersey Arts Trust.

OFF THE MAP is generously supported by the BYU Mary Lou Fulton Endowment in Theatre and Media Arts.

Approximately 60 minutes
