Imagine being six years old and writing a list of everything that was brilliant with the world just to give it to your mother after a suicide attempt.

Award-winning playwright Duncan Macmillan’s Every Brilliant Thing is a funny and heartfelt look at depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Receiving critical and audience acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival and a 16-week Off-Broadway run, Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre Company bring this poignant piece to Calgary.

Every Brilliant Thing runs January 17 to 21, 2017 at the Pumphouse Theatre (2140 Pumphouse Ave. SW) and is part of the High Performance Rodeo, running January 5 to February 2, 2017.
