Every Brilliant Thing - Calgary

Every Brilliant Thing

By Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe
Produced by Burnt Thicket Theatre

You're seven years old. Mom's in the hospital. Dad says she's done something stupid. You start making a list of everything worth living for, and leave it on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling.  

Through two decades and thousands of "brilliant things", Every Brilliant Thing shows the lengths we go to for those we love, and that while things may not always get brilliant - they will always get better. 

Starring Jenna-Lee Hyde

Stage Manager Alana Freistadt
Sound Designer and Scenic Co-Designer Tim Bratton
Lighting Designer Charlie Peters
