Every Brilliant Thing is a play about everything worth living for – from ice cream, to staying up late to watch TV, to the music of Ray Charles. It’s a responsible and hilarious way of talking about depression. With the help of the audience, who are thrown into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies, it tells the story of a boy’s response to his mum’s suicide.

This award-winning play strikes the perfect balance between hurt and hope, using humour to have the hardest conversations.

“I now realise that it’s important to talk about things. Particularly the things that are the hardest to talk about.”

Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour. This international sensation throws audience members into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies following one person’s life in the shadow of mental illness. From the broad #4 ‘The Colour Yellow’ to the detailed #9998 ‘Watching someone watch your favourite film’, this joyous and intimate work shows us the miracles in life’s minutiae.
