      Every Brilliant Thing

      For the first time in Pensacola, PenArts presents the international hit EVERY BRILLIANT THING by Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahue.

      You’re six years old. Mom’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. 6. Me. 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 play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

      “ At the end of a powerful show like this, the audience is left light on their feet with warm hearts and a better understanding of mental health. More importantly, they're left with a better understanding of the responsibility to do better as individuals and as a community.”

      “[EVERY BRILLIANT THING] is sad, but it is also gloriously funny and exceptionally warm. It’s a show that spells out a little of what depression can do to people, but it also highlights the irrepressible resilience of the human spirit and the capacity to find delight in the everyday.”

      Cost: Payment required - $20 ticket includes a glass of wine at the performance. There will also be a food truck before the show to complete your evening.
