Every Brilliant Thing

"You're six years old. Mum's in hospital. Dad says she's 'done something wrong.' She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything that's worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2...." So begins a moving, insightful and hilarious new one-person play that is unlike anything you've seen before. Arden favorite Scott Greer leads audiences through a remarkable journey that truly examines what makes life worth living - and the power of theatre to bring people together. Join us for the Philadelphia premiere of this international, off-Broadway hit as the inaugural production in the Arden's intimate Hamilton Family Arts Center Studio Theatre.
