Following a sell-out 16 week run Off-Broadway and an acclaimed National Tour, Every Brilliant Thing returns to Edinburgh

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 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

A new play about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.


“Heart-wrenching, hilarious … possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.” ★★★★ The Guardian
