Metro Arts’ Every Brilliant Thing is a funny but thought-provoking interactive theatre experience, inviting Brisbane audiences to consider the small joys and everyday moments of beauty that make life brilliant.

Every Brilliant Thing is a new production from Ipswich-based THAT Production Company of Duncan Macmillan’s acclaimed UK comedy.

The play traverses family, love, loss and hope, from a son’s perspective as he puts together a list of life’s magical and mundane moments to help his mother who is struggling with depression.

THAT Production Company Artistic Director Timothy Wynn described Every Brilliant Thing as a heartwarming, honest, and hopeful journey.

“Audiences can expect storytelling at its most essential,” he said.

“This play offers an authentic, engaging and entertaining experience while discussing some of the more challenging – yet totally universal – elements of living.”

Lead actor Jason Klarwein has worked with theatre companies all over Australia and was nominated for a Helpmann Award in 2017.

In Every Brilliant Thing, the unique interactions between him and the audience means every show is different.

“Essentially, this is a play that deeply connects with its audience – there’s no division,” he said.

“It leaves audiences with a subtle, transformational quality. I believe that’s why it has resonated so powerfully across the globe.”
