Every Brilliant Thing

April 30th, 2019
Milwaukee Repertory Theater

April 12 – 28, 2019, By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe, Directed by Terrence J. Nolen. A powerful new play featuring Scott Greer from Of Mice and Men. A young boy tries to ease his mother’s depression with a list of everything worth living for: “Ice Cream,” “Star Trek,” “Surprises,” “Rollercoasters.” As the list grows, he learns the deep significance it has on his own life over three decades. It is a testament to the power of storytelling and a reminder that hope is never truly lost.
