Every Brilliant Thing

Feb 22 through March 10

A child learns that her mother has been hospitalized because, as her father says, “she did something stupid.” She resolves to show her mom that life is worth living, by writing a list of 1,000 “Brilliant Things” on scraps of paper for her mother to find. 

Every Brilliant Thing offers an unflinching view of chronic depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Far from being sad or tragic, the play approaches the topic with love and sincerity, with hope and even humor. This unique theater experience involves the audience in the story, evoking empathy, tears, laughter, insight and deep compassion.  Our regional premiere production features actor, storyteller and playwright Becky Wahlstrom



"Wahlstrom - under the sublime direction of TWTP founder and artistic director Maryanna Clarke - delivers a performance that is so vital, so resonant that every line uttered seems profound and essential."
- Jef Ellis, BroadwayWorld.com/Nashville
