Every Brilliant Thing

Yesterday I saw a wonderful new play called “Every Brilliant Thing” by Duncan Macmillan performed by Isaac Lamb at the Portland Center Stage. Isaac did a superb job in this one-man show which also involved plenty of audience participation and improvisation. Although the subject matter, suicide, was dark, the play as a whole incorporated plenty of humor and an uplifting message that “life is worth living” if we choose to focus on every brilliant thing around us. The play has also been produced on HBO and can be streamed.

It was an altogether great afternoon at the theatre!
