Every Brilliant Thing

November 7-23

Written by Duncan Macmillan
Directed by Patricia Wylie and Mathieu Voisine
Starring Tom Hewitt

You’re six years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s done something stupid. 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. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because shes corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own. A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.


A powerful, black box theatre experience in the heart of Downtown Salem

The mission of the Verona Studio is to offer a performing arts experience that is bold and challenging to our audiences, that presents the best in the contemporary and classical repertoire, that will showcase local talent, and that will provide an opportunity to explore the diversity of human experience; to offer educational opportunities to individuals who wish to explore the performing arts and to develop their skills in all areas of performance and production; and to foster performing arts endeavors in the Salem community.
