Every Brilliant Thing

Worldwide smash hit solo show to be performed in Japanese!

Mom went into hospital when I was 7. Life become too much for her. So, to buck her up I made a list of all the brilliant things in life.

  1. Ice cream.
  2. Water fights.
  3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV.
  4. The colour of yellow.

And when I got to 1000, I really believed mom would feel better. I think she looked at my list sometimes – she must have, because she corrected my mistakes.

The boy who passed through childhood like this carries on writing his list of brilliant things that make life worth living, even when he grows up……

This gives a moment of courage to live for tomorrow when one is feeling low.
