Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan MacMillan & Jonny Donahoe Presented by New Stages Theatre
New Stages proudly presents the return of EVERY BRILLIANT THING, featuring Steve Ross, one of Canada’s best actors.
EVERY BRILLIANT THING is a life-affirming story of holding onto hope in the face of crisis. After a sold-out run in Peterborough that closed just before the pandemic, EVERY BRILLIANT THING returns with its message of hope more poignant now than ever. With humour and warmth, Stratford actor Steve Ross is simply remarkable in the lead role, a man who reflects back on his family life, his encounters with depression, and how he’s found a way to keep going in difficult times.
A perfect play for our times, EVERY BRILLIANT THING is a much-needed reminder of all the little things that make life worth living. Join us for a unique theatre experience!
