Every Brilliant Thing

By Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe
Featuring Scott Greer
Directed by Terrence J. Nolen

Bob and Selma Horan Studio Theatre at the Hamilton Family Arts Center
Approximate Runtime: 1 hours and 30 minutes


"You're seven years old. Mom's in the 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 Bob and Selma Horan Studio Theatre at the Hamilton Family Arts Center.

EVERY BRILLIANT THING will be produced in our new Bob and Selma Horan Studio Theatre at the Hamilton Arts Center on 62 N. 2nd Street, just a few doors north of Arden Theatre Company. This is an intimate space and we will have a brand new seating configuration for this performance that will surround the stage and draw the audience in as close as possible. Tickets can be purchased now but please be aware that seats will not be assigned until November 1. If you select to have your tickets mailed they will be sent out in the first week of November.
