Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre Company’s sensational production ‘EVERY BRILLIANT THING’ by Duncan Macmillan comes to the Ventnor Exchange for one night only on Tuesday 20th September, following runs in London, New York, Edinbugh and extensive UK tours.
“You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy.
So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world.
Everything that’s worth living for.
1. Ice Cream
2. Kung Fu Movies
3. Burning Things
4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose
5. Construction cranes
You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling.
Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.”
A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
Based on true and untrue stories.
