For anyone whose life has been touched by depression in some way, Every Brilliant Thing allows us to laugh, love, and connect in a very honest way.
This Off-Broadway & London hit, later made into an HBO presentation, stars Chris Hester in a one-man show that brings the audience up close and personal, with a list that takes on a life of its own.
"Every Brilliant Thing" tells the story of a son who creates a list of things worth living for, a list of everything brilliant about the world, everything worth fighting for, a list of things that make him happy, in an attempt to raise the spirits of his chronically depressed mom.
As the story unfolds, and the list grows, we follow him from a 7 year old boy into manhood, as he himself struggles with life's unpredictable path. Sincere, funny and warm, "Every Brilliant Thing" doesn't marginalize the subject of depression, but it does shine a gentle light on the realities, and the lengths we will go for those we love.
At its core, it is a play that celebrates life and inspires hope.
While acknowledging there are no easy answers, "Every Brilliant Thing" shows us that tiny miracles and glimpses of grace that make up a life, are all around us just waiting to be found.
