This Friday at 8pm, The Spring in Havant will play host to Duncan MacMillan’s Edinburgh Festival and Off-Broadway hit Every Brilliant Thing.
A personal highlight of the season for Sophie Fullerlove, director of The Spring, the play is about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love based partly on true stories.
‘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 that’s worth living for.
1. Ice Cream
2. Kung Fu Movies
3. Burning Things
4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose
5. Construction cranes
‘You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.’
