About Every Brilliant Things
Every Brilliant Things, from Duncan Macmillan is a text as light hearted as serious: the suicide, without complaisance. In this text, we follow someone’s experience facing bereavement through a simple and playful exchange with the public. Behind this barren spell, the play ask about the death and life relationship, always with the sense of humour. Strongly influenced by the stand-up shows, the play develops a great complicity with its audience, which cannot be categorized: a play between happy requiem and mischievous role play.
