2017 M1-The Straits Times Life Theatre Award nominee Andrew Marko (Falling, Electra, RENT) stars in the Singapore premiere of 2014 and 2016 Edinburgh Fringe hit Every Brilliant Thing presented by Bhumi Collective, and directed by Mohamad Shaifulbahri.

"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
6. Me

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."

A new play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

Based on true and untrue stories.
