Your Brilliant Things

In our upcoming production of Every Brilliant Thing, by Duncan Macmillan, a child creates a list of things “that make life  worth living”. As the child journeys into adulthood, the list evolves and grows along with him. From #1. ice cream to #10,000. waking up late with someone you love, the audience is invited to join the storyteller in reflecting on the simple, wonderful, joyful things that inspire hope even in the darkest times.

In celebration of this beautiful play, and the fact that we are finally bringing it to life on our stage, YOU are invited to help us create our own list of BRILLIANT things that bring joy and light into your life.

How to Play

1. Think of things that are genuinely wonderful and life-affirming

2. Think beyond just material items

3. Think positive and celebratory and inclusive (hateful or discriminatory items will be removed)

The list begins with:

1. Ice cream

2. Water fights

3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV

Please join us in celebrating EVERY BRILLIANT THING by sharing what brings you joy. Use the form below to submit as many brilliant things as you like. To see the list so far, click HERE.
