Every Brilliant Thing

By: Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

​Starring: Nick Crawford

Directed By: Tam DeBolt

Thu, Fri, and Sat at 8:00  **  Sundays at 2:30

TICKETS are $25.

This is a "pop-up" show!!


This show will NOT take place on the TNT stage, but in the Youth Center at the Magic City Acceptance Center (MCAC). It's just three blocks east of TNT ... the big, red building at the corner of 32nd and 3rd.

You’re six years old. Mom’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. Water fights.

  3. Staying up past your bedtime.

  4. The color yellow.

  5. Things with stripes.


You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s 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.

MAGIC CITY ACCEPTANCE CENTER * 3130 3rd Avenue South * Birmingham, AL 35233
