Every Brilliant Thing – Premieres November 9th 19.00 at GEST
GOTHENBURG ENGLISH STUDIO THEATRE is thrilled to present the hilarious
and deeply moving International hit Every Brilliant Thing
by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe
Directed by Kristina Brändén Whitaker.
Performed by Gary Whitaker
A touching, funny and life-affirming play about depression and the lengths we will go
to for those we love.
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 to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world:
1. Ice cream
2. Water fight
3. People falling over
5. Laughing so hard you shoot milk through your nose
As the boy grows into a man the list evolves too. Over 30 years and thousands of
entries later, he discovers that the list might even help himself.
