Every Brilliant Thing, presented by Tennessee Women's Theater Project
"Every Brilliant Thing"
by Duncan Macmillian, with Jonny Donahoe

February 22 through March 10, 2019

This one-woman play depicts a daughter who learns as a child that her mother has been hospitalized for doing, as her father puts it, "something stupid." She resolves to show her mother that life is worth living, by writing a list of 1,000 brilliant things and leaving them on scraps of paper for her mother to find.

"Every Brilliant Thing" offers an unflinching view of chronic depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Far from being sad or tragic, the play approaches the topic with love and sincerity, with hope and even humor. This unique theater experience involves the audience in the story, evoking empathy, tears, laughter, insight and deep compassion.

Our regional premiere production features actor, storyteller and playwright Becky Wahlstrom. Becky's previous acting credits with Tennessee Women's Theater Project include multiple roles in Voices of Nashville (2013, 2015). Among her plays are "A Froggy Becomes (2017)," and "In Stitches," which evolved from a play commissioned by TWTP (2016). https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0906345/
