Every Brilliant Thing – The Court Theatre

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - May 4 @ 9:00 pm

Step into a world where screens and algorithms fade into the background and experience the power of genuine connection in real time and space. Together, let’s craft something unforgettable.

Over 80 minutes, Every Brilliant Thing brings together a group of strangers in a way that only live theatre can—reflecting what it is to be human in a shared and immediate experience. A seven-year old’s mother attempts to take her life, but what does a seven-year-old do to make sense of it and to help the most important person in their life to see all the reasons to be happy; to see every brilliant thing?

Playfully pieced together with direct involvement from the audience, our narrator takes us back to how the list of every brilliant thing started. Every Brilliant Thing is funny, sad, uplifting, and honest; it is a truly unique theatrical experience.
