MAY 18 @ 10am on the Mainstage
Directed by: Tracena Marie
Sides for Auditions
What if you were to start a list (right this very moment) of everything that’s brilliant about your life? All the things worth living for. What would be on your list? Every Brilliant Thing is a refreshingly unique one-person play that creates space to alleviate the stigma of suicide and depression in today’s society. The Narrator takes the audience on a journey filled with captivating and compassionate moments of storytelling; inviting the audience to become an extension of the story being told in a live theatre setting. This work of theatre encourages our communities to have open conversations about mental health and gently reminds us of our shared humanity through the bleak and the brilliant.
The Narrator (early 30’s – early 50’s) may be played by a woman or man.
