Het Nationale Theater
What gives life color?

Wed 2 Dec ’20

A six-year-old boy makes a list for his mother who has attempted suicide. He hopes his list of "brilliant things" will brighten her mood, keep her alive, and make her realize that life is worth living.

As he gets older, goes to college, and falls in love, the list grows to eventually include a million things. Increasingly, it ends up being a lifeline for him as well as he grows up.

The young English playwright Duncan Macmillan wrote this heartbreaking and simultaneously hilarious monologue. Every Brilliant Thing is heart-warming, humorous and hopeful, played closely to and with the audience.

Het Nationale Theater will be a guest for almost a week, takes over the Parktheater and gets to know our visitors.
