If you were to make a list of things that make life worth living, what would be at the top? Ice cream? Family? The even numbered Star Trek films? Whom would you share your list with? For our character in this uplifting solo performance, it’s their mother. This surprising and immersive theatrical experience speaks openly about depression, mental illness and suicide. With poignant humor and joy, “Every Brilliant Thing” takes us on a journey through grief, healing, falling in love and (re)discovering all that life has to give.

McPherson Community Theatre is proud to present “Every Brilliant Thing,” by Duncan Macmillan, Nov. 19-22 at the McPherson Opera House. Shows will be performed at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. The doors open one-half hour before the show begins.

Two of the performances will feature Lindsey Mueting, directed by Skye Colaw and two performances will feature Kyle Banman, directed by Scott Steinert.

Open seating tickets, $20 all-inclusive, are available through the McPherson Opera House website. A limited number of tickets are available for each performance. In light of recent COVID-19 developments, it is especially important that social distancing guidelines be observed and masks be worn during the performances. Audience participation is a part of the show and any microphones used or surfaces contacted will be sanitized for safety.
