Every Brilliant Thing:

Show guidelines

Imagine a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world—all of the reasons a 7-year-old would want to live: ice cream, the color yellow, laughing so hard you shoot milk out of your nose. Transformative and relevant, Every Brilliant Thing examines the stigma of depression, the lengths we go to for those we love, and how a seemingly simple list can take on a life of its own.


The words shit, sexy, and sex are used in the script.

Sexual Innuendo


Drugs & Alcohol




Mature Content

The script deals with the topics of suicide and mental illness.

Artistic Director Rick Dildine offers a preshow guide to our production of  EVERY BRILLIANT THING.
