Every Brilliant Thing

Written 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 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.



"One of the funniest plays you'll ever see about depression - and possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop." - The Guardian.

"This is a piece that demands we pay attention. To ourselves, the person in the next seat, across the aisle and beyond, and to the small things that bring joy. Brilliant." - The Sydney Morning Herald.

"This is a must-see show." - ArtsHub

"A raw but affirming play. Incredibly uplifting, the audience drawn into a celebration of the things that make life worth living, in a beautiful piece of communal theatre." - Limelight.

"A tender, funny and profound exploration of mental illness and finding joy in the every day." - Belvoir Theatre.
