Every Brilliant Thing at the Florida Rep

Fort Myers 2268 Bay Street , Fort Myers, Florida 33901


1) Ice cream. 2) Rollercoasters. 3) Staying up past your bedtime. As a mother battles chronic depression, her child creates a list of everything that makes life worth living. As time passes and the list grows, what began as an innocent attempt to deal with tragedy becomes an epic chronicle of life's small joys. This touching, funny, and intimate one-person tour-de-force charts the lengths we will go for those we love, and asks the audience’s help to tell the story in a setting the ArtStage Studio Theatre has never seen! Every Brilliant Thing is an important and electrifying new play that strikes a delicate balance between sobering loss and cathartic laughter.

An exhilarating and inventive NEW PLAY that takes audiences on an unexpected, funny, and emotional journey of healing and self-discovery. “Charming! Captivating!” –New York Times
