A Segal Centre production in association with Hudson Village Theatre 

Every Brilliant Thing

By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe 

Directed by Dean Patrick Fleming 
Starring Daniel Brochu 

Hugs, the smell of old books, a hairdresser who listens to what you want 

The colour yellow, roller coasters, ice cream — as a mother battles chronic depression, a child creates a list of every brilliant thing they can think of, to remind them what makes life worth living. As the child grows, so does the list. Looking back on a life of ups and downs, the man takes the audience on an inspiring journey that celebrates finding joy in the mundane and being grateful for the simple pleasures hiding all around us. At once intimate and interactive, this touching, funny, and uplifting performance chronicles life’s small joys and reveals the lengths to which we will go for those we love.
