ABOUT THE SHOW
“If you’ve finally had your fill of “It’s a Wonderful Life” but are still in search of seasonal catharsis, might I suggest a very charming alternative, one that offers sentimentality without shame? It’s called “Every Brilliant Thing,” and it’s pretty much guaranteed to keep your eyes brimming.” —NEW YORK TIMES

Everything worth living for.

She writes lists. Lists that she hopes will inspire her mother to see the joy in life. She’s been writing these lists since she was seven. A heartrending yet hopeful play about the lengths we go to for those we love. In a transformed Belfry – with the help of you, the audience – she will deliver a list of all the things that make life worth living, starting with ice cream.

This is simply one of the most moving pieces of theatre I have ever seen. It is so full of life, and pain, and joy, and yearning – it overflows with humanity. And its remarkable use of the audience as participants in the storytelling makes for a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable experience. —Michael Shamata

ABOUT RELAXED PERFORMANCES
Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome patrons who will benefit from a less restrictive theatre experience.

While everyone is welcome to attend, the audience experience is adapted for those who will benefit from a more relaxed sensory experience and casual environment, including (but not limited to) patrons on the autism spectrum, or with any sensory processing disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, or learning disability.

There will be a relaxed attitude to noise and movement within the theatre and lobby, and some minor production changes will be made to reduce the intensity of light, sound and other potentially startling effects.

These shows are for anyone. Many people may choose to attend a Relaxed Performance for ease of access, or because they like the inclusive environment. Those with physical conditions who have trouble sitting for an extended period of time and babes in arms are also welcome to our relaxed performance.

For our patrons who will benefit from an advance introduction to the theatre experience we will be producing a Visual Story – a short document describing how to get to the Belfry and what to expect when you see the play. Familiarization tours can also be arranged.

To book tickets to this Relaxed Performance, or to discuss any specific requirements you may have, contact Ian Gibson, Audience Services Manager at ian.gibson@belfry.bc.ca or 250-385-6815.
Pay What You Can Tickets will be available at the door.
