Caravan Theatre tours the critically-acclaimed play Every Brilliant Thing, November 2023
The colour yellow, roller coasters, ice cream — as her mother battles chronic depression, a daughter creates a list of every brilliant thing she can think of, to remind her mom of what makes life worth living. As the child grows, so does the list. Looking back on a life of ups and downs, she 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.
