An immersive storytelling experience blends comedy, improv, and audience interaction to tell the story of an adult growing up in the shadow of mental illness, and learning to grapple with his own experiences with love, loss and depression.
In response to their mother’s attempted suicide, a child begins a list of Every Brilliant Thing worth living for. As the child journeys into adulthood, the list evolves alongside them. From 1. ice cream to 10000. waking up late with someone you love, the audience is invited to join the storyteller in reflecting on the simple, wonderful, joyful things that inspire hope even in the darkest times.
