Every Brilliant Thing

Every Brilliant Thing
Ice cream. The smell of old books. Mork & Mindy. We all collect these little slivers of delight among the daily splinters of life. From childhood to adulthood, our protagonist guides her audience through a personal chronicle of life's joys in the face of her mother's depression. Do water fights and roller coasters also get lost in the void, or do the bright spots burn true? This Fall, join the Playhouse for an interactive experience. Audiences are invited to speak on behalf of a vet, a father, a lecturer, and even a therapist sock in this "come-as-you-are performance" (no prior acting experience or rehearsal required!) Who knows—maybe you'll walk away with a brilliant thing of your own. Content Warning: Although presented in a lighthearted manner, the inciting incident of this story is an attempted suicide.
