Through equal parts humor and empathy, Every Brilliant Thing tells the story of a young man who has lived in the shadow of mental illness. In an attempt to raise his mother’s spirits, he starts a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world-all of the reasons to want to live. As he grows up and has his own experiences with love, loss, and depression, the list evolves to serve as a lifelong reminder that joy can be found even in seemingly insignificant moments.

Performance Time: 2pm and 7pm
