EVERY BRILLIANT THING
BY DUNCAN MACMILLAN WITH JONNY DONAHOE
Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life-affirming humour. This multiple award-winning international sensation throws audience members into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies following one person’s life in the shadow of mental illness.
From the broad #4 ‘The Colour Yellow’ to the detailed #9998 ‘Watching someone watch your favourite film’, this joyous and intimate work shows us the miracles in life’s minutiae.

Everything that’s worth living for.
