Burnt Thicket Theatre presents Every Brilliant Thing

April 11, 2025 7:30 pm @ St. Stephen\'s United Church - Hudson Bay


Experience the hit comedy about depression & gratitude: EVERY BRILLIANT THING, by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe, starring Sarah Robertson.
"You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything worth living for.
1. Ice Cream. 2. Rollercoasters. 3. Peeing in the lake and nobody knows...
You leave the list on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling."
Twenty years & thousands of things later, the list takes on a life of its own. This astonishingly funny, unforgettable solo performance dives deep into mental health & the lengths we go to for those we love. Based on true & untrue stories.
"Hilarious... one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see."
