Presented by Virginia Stage Company, this story is told from the perspective of a single performer. It is an immersive experience that blends comedy, improv, and audience interaction to tell one individual’s story of growing up in the shadow of their mother’s struggle with suicidal depression while also learning to grapple with their own journey and life experiences. Surprisingly charming and delightful, “Every Brilliant Thing” provides a life-affirming jolt of humanism, reminding us that hope comes from the miracles of life’s minutiae. The aim is to destigmatize the conversation around mental health and encourage the audience to see the many ways in which we all experience joy and hardship. This production involves audience participation. All Interactions are optional; the production may be enjoyed with or without participating. Sponsored by Sentara Healthcare. To RSVP, click here.
