You’re six years old. Mum’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 worth living for:
1. Ice cream
2. Kung fu movies
A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Every Brilliant Thing returns to the UK hot from a 16-week run off-Broadway.
Roundabout at Regency Square
Paines Plough is the national theatre of new plays. Its Roundabout auditorium is a beautiful pop-up, in-the-round theatre which pitches up in Regency Square for the duration of Brighton Festival 2015. A self-contained 168-seat circular auditorium that flat packs into a lorry, Roundabout has travelled around the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights to people’s doorsteps.
Our Teacher's A Troll, Lungs and The Initiate are performed 'in rep' by an exceptional cast and Every Brilliant Thing features Jonny Donahoe.

‘Something strange and delightful has landed... it's Paines Plough's portable Roundabout’ Evening Standard
Do wrap up warm as the Roundabout is within a GeoDome tent, and the Square is quite an exposed, windy site.
· Ticket collection will be available at the Square from 30 minutes prior to every performance.
· Please note latecomers will not be admitted to any performances at Roundabout, due to the format and intimacy of the venue.
