Every Brilliant Thing
One of the funniest plays about depression, presented by City of Karratha and Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA. Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour. This international sensation throws audience members into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies following one person’s life in the shadow of mental illness.
From the broad #4 ‘The Colour Yellow’ to the detailed #9998 ‘Watching someone watch your favourite film’, this joyous and intimate work shows us the miracles in life’s minutiae.
ONE OF THE FUNNIEST PLAYS YOU’LL EVER SEE ABOUT DEPRESSION – AND POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FUNNIEST PLAYS YOU’LL EVER SEE, FULL STOP
