Dad’s picked you up late from school. He says that Mum’s done something stupid. That she’s hurt herself because she’s sad. So you start to write a list, on Post-it notes. A list of every brilliant thing in the world. Years pass, decades disappear, and the list takes on a life of its own — because there are plenty of brilliant things in the world, if you just know where to look. An international sensation since its world premiere in 2014, Danielle Cormack, Jason Te Kare and Anapela Polata’ivao unite to bring Duncan Macmillan’s critically acclaimed play back to New Zealand. Every Brilliant Thing is a warm, deep hug of a play, a story about depression, loss and finding all the beautiful things in your life – whether it’s ice cream, water fights or laughing so hard you snort milk through your nose. A solo show starring Anapela Polata’ivao and Jason Te Kare in turn. “One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression – and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop…” – The Guardian ★★★★1/2 “Brilliant” – The Sydney Morning Herald ★★★★1/2 “Beautiful… one you won’t soon forget” – Limelight Every Brilliant Thing contains adult themes and references to self-harm and suicide and is recommended for ages 15 and above.
