Every Brilliant Thing

28 April—13 May 2023

  • This article was produced in collaboration with the State Theatre Company of South Australia.

Sometimes the little things can create something big and beautiful.

A young boy attempts to bring his mother out of depression by making her a list of every brilliant thing in the world.

Decades pass, the list grows and what was once a game eventually becomes a new way of looking at the world – a world where there is joy to be found in every corner of our world, if we can open ourselves to the possibility.


Every Brilliant Thing
28 April—13 May
Space Theatre
Adelaide Festival Centre, Festival Drive, Adelaide 5000
Tickets and more info

Duncan Macmillan’s acclaimed interactive comedy about family, love, loss and hope has delighted and moved audiences across the globe, and heads to Adelaide in a new production helmed by Yasmin Gurreeboo (Decameron 2.0) and starring Jimi Bani (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Mabo).

It’s raw, real and intimate, and although it may seem like a solo work, this is a show that involves all of its audience (in a non-scary way – you’ll love it!) to build bridges and mend hearts.
