1. Ice cream 2. Water fights 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV. These are just a few items on a list of things worth living for compiled by a young girl trying to ease her mother's depression at the start of the charming and miraculous new play Every Brilliant Thing. Through adulthood, as the list grows, she learns the deep significance the list has on her own life, as she goes to college, falls in love, and builds a home. A tribute to the irrepressible resilience inside all of us, and the capacity to find delight in the everyday, Every Brilliant Thing is a very funny and moving new play that enlists members of the audience to help tell its story.
