Every Brilliant Thing at the Roosevelt Center

Wednesday, July 3, 2019

The Montana Tour of Every Brilliant Thing will visit Roosevelt Center, Red Lodge, July 12 at 7 p.m. It is free admission with a suggested $5 donation that will go towards local resources for mental health and suicide prevention.  

Written by award-winning British playwright Duncan Macmillan with UK comedian Jonny Donahoe and alternately starring Helena native Rosie Seitz Ayers and Ryan Eggensperger, this powerful one-actor show explores mental health, families and the ways we love in a hilarious and uplifting production for both adults and teenagers.

Every Brilliant Thing co-creator Donahoe described the play as “the funniest thing you’ll ever see about the least funny thing in the world”. “You cannot get through life without an experience of depression, whether that means suffering from it yourself or knowing a loved one who is going through it. So talking about depression is absolutely vital but it’s a bloody difficult thing to do. Hopefully we’ve built something that makes that just a tiny bit easier,” he said.

The show is presented by Grandstreet Theatre.
