About The Show
#1: Ice cream. #2: Kung Fu movies. #3: Staying up past your bedtime…
You’re six years old. Mom’s in the hospital. 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. As you grow, the list will take on a life of its own. Hilarious and heart-wrenching, this critically-acclaimed play is a unique, theatrical experience you will never forget.
Rated PG-13 for adult situations, including frank descriptions of suicide and depression.
“Finds a perfect balance between conveying the struggles of life, and celebrating all that is sweet in it.”
