Ice cream, hugs, the smell of old books...
How many little joys do we take for granted but that make life so special? A child whose mother has chronic depression attempts to list as many of these as he can, so he can prove to her, and remind himself, that life is indeed worth living. Winning over Segal audiences in our limited-run spring production, Every Brilliant Thing is a celebration of gratitude, resilience, and the motivating force of love.

This one-man show is intimate and interactive, poignant and funny, and reminds us that we are surrounded all the time by a bounty of brilliant things.


“This is a life-affirming theatre experience unlike any other. It’s the perfect first show back to see and to be in the theatre together again.”
