Professional actors. Professional productions.

Written by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe
Directed by Sean Christopher Lewis
Starring Tim Budd

1. Ice cream, 2. Water fights, 3. Things with stripes, 4. Christopher Walken's voice, 5. Rollercoasters. Starring one of the area's most beloved actors, EVERY BRILLIANT THING is the story of a young boy who attempts to ease his mother's sadness by creating a list of all the best things in the world. Through adulthood, as the list grows, he learns the deep significance it has on his own life. A truly beautiful evening.

Sean says: "One of the best pieces I saw in New York last year. It gives me all the things I want from a holiday-timed play: beauty, family, community and awe. Can't miss."
