Every Brilliant Thing synopsis: You’re seven years old. Mom’s in the hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A play about depression that celebrates the world’s joys. Featuring Tasi Alabastro and Dane K. Lentz, and presented as a bilingual production in English and American Sign Language.

On Wednesday, Oct. 12, 7 p.m., join director Lisa Mallette and actors Dane & Tasi for a free Zoom talkback. To sign up, “buy” a free ticket online. We’ll send you the Zoom link in your confirmation email.
