Every Brilliant Thing strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter. Adapting the hit off-Broadway one-character show of the same name written by Duncan Macmillan, the play recounts a life lived in the shadow of suicide.

This is a heart-wrenching yet humorous presentation about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. 
In this acclaimed show, a young boy attempts to cure his mother’s depression by creating a list of the best things in the world. The list grows as he progresses from childhood (“Ice Cream”) and adolescence (“Star Trek”), to college (“Surprises”) and marriage (“Falling in Love”). But when life deals a bitter blow, the list proves to be helpful to the son in ways that it could never be for the mother.

This show is Directed by Sashane Perera featuring Rajinda Jayasinghe#everybrilliantthing
