Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe
This comedic, one-woman show is unlike any piece of theatre you've likely ever seen and you've only got five chances to see it. It's hilarious and touching at the same time - Amelia Sciandria is incredible in Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe at Threshold Repertory Theatre for the Piccolo Spoleto Festival.
You're six years old. Mom'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. 6. Me. 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. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
This comedy "finds a perfect balance between conveying the struggles of life, and celebrating all that is sweet in it." - The Independent
