SYNOPSIS

EVERY BRILLIANT THING is a charming, brave, and often hilarious look at life in the shadow of depression. Hoping to save his mother from her struggles, a 7-year-old boy begins a list of all the things in life worth sticking around for...

  1. Ice cream.
  2. Water fights.
  3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV.


Throughout the show the list grows, chronicling life's joys - both big and small, and takes on a profound meaning.

315. The smell of old books.

1007. The fact that sometimes there is a perfect song to match how you are feeling.

We're spellbound by this intimate, poignant story and are thrilled to share it with our Knoxville community.
