Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company

"One of the funniest plays you'll ever see about depression - and possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop" - The Guardian

Performed in-the-round, by the incredible Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is an hour of life affirming humour. This multiple award-winning international sensation throws audience members into the story as fathers, lovers, friends and allies following one person’s life in the shadow of mental illness.

From the broad #4 "The Colour Yellow" to the detailed #9998 "Watching someone watch your favourite film", this joyous and intimate work shows us the miracles in life’s minutiae.


Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s "done something stupid". So I’m working on a list.

#1. Ice cream
#2. Water fights

Everything that’s brilliant about the world

#5. Things with stripes
#25. Wearing a cape

Everything that’s worth living for.

#314 The Way Ray Charles sings the word ‘You’
#319. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out of your nose
#823. Skinny Dipping

I’m going to try to get to one million.
