Play: “Every Brilliant Thing” & Dessert Discussion

  • Thursday, May 9, 20247:00 PM 
  • Friday, May 10, 20249:00 PM
  • Tryon International 95 International Boulevard Mill Spring, NC, 28782

The month kicks off May 9-10 with two nights of performances of the one-man show, “Every Brilliant Thing,” by Duncan MacMillan. It is the poignant story of a man who begins writing a list, at the age of seven, of every brilliant thing that makes life worth living when his mom first attempts suicide. While the show tackles the very serious topics of mental health, depression, and suicide, it is a show filled with humor, joy, and hope. Produced in partnership with Woodstock Arts, the show will be hosted at 7 pm each night in the Ridge, the third floor of the International Pavilion at Tryon International.

Each performance of “Every Brilliant Thing” will be followed by complimentary dessert and a panel discussion with mental health professionals from Pavillon, CooperRiis, and St. Luke’s Hospital Mental Health and Wellness.
