Join us in the very intimate Minnaert Center Black Box for a theatrical evening like none you’ve ever experienced before. The color yellow. Sunsets. Things with stripes. Wearing a cape. Ice cream! There are a million brilliant things. Can you name them all? The hit play and international sensation by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe, is a one-of-a-kind storytelling experience blending comedy with improv to tell the story of an adult learning to grapple with their own experiences of love, loss, and finding a new way forward, one brilliant thing at a time.
“What Duncan Macmillan and Jonny Donahoe have been able to achieve is something very rare. It’s an extraordinarily positive and productive discussion about a difficult subject, which is mental illness. And they do it in a way that is so personal. It’s inviting. It’s happy. It’s difficult. But first and foremost it fundamentally includes the audience in the conversation in a way no other theatre piece that I have ever seen or worked on has done. Through this positive conversation, you’ll walk out from the theater happier, lighter, and better prepared to handle the world.” – Producing Artistic Director Aaron Lamb
