Every Brilliant Thing
A Performance SCE from Jake Smith
April 21-22, 2017
Every Brilliant Thing starts with a young boy who creates a list of little things to help his mother find happiness. Many years pass, and the list starts to take on a life of its own. Thousands of entries are added such as ice cream, Marlon Brando, and burning things. What starts out as a simple way of dealing with his mother being hospitalized becomes a reminder of all the little joys in life.
