Every Brilliant Thing is a one-man-dramedy recounting a young boy’s attempt at making sense of adult unhappiness after his mother’s suicide. In the face of the act that he can barely understand, he makes a list of everything worth living for.
Now an adult man, he finds himself roaming his mother’s run-down mansion, digging up scraps of his old list, and regaining the courage to face his own demons.
The journey back to the hopeful simplicity of childhood and its positively naive, comic yet utterly true logic make of Every Brilliant Thing a buoyant tale celebrating life.
