Every Brilliant Thing – On Tour from Utah Shakespeare Festival
Every Brilliant Thing
by Duncan Macmillan
On Tour from Utah Shakespeare Festival
January 18th at 2PM & 7:30PM
The Utah Shakespeare Festival’s touring production of Every Brilliant Thing, a play about what to do when we lose all hope in hope itself, is landing at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta. USF is touring this production through many high schools in Utah, in order to impact and open conversations around depression and hopelessness that our youth (and adults) experience. We invite ALL those who are homeschooled, any students who missed this production and DSU students to attend either performance FREE of charge (call to reserve your seats as it will sell-out). We encourage all ages, who need a reminder about every brilliant thing in this world, to come to this interactive performance that walks us through a variety of sorrows and highlights experienced in the journey of life itself. We thank USF for bringing this new production to life on stage throughout our state. This timely message is brilliantly performed and applies to ALL people of any age or in any stage of life.
