"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
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.
Based on true and untrue stories.

"Immersive and engaging, Every Brilliant Thing hits hard and represents fringe-type theatre at its finest..."
"In Every Brilliant Thing, he[Andrew Marko] is affable, down to earth and the audience is drawn in quietly but directly."
- The Straits Times
"Andrew Marko is brilliant at navigating the crowd and holding the action together from beginning to end. Beyond just acting, he manages to pull in the crowd and bring everyone together with his humour and demeanor."
"...Marko’s performance keeps it
grounded as he steers clear of oversentimentality while keeping upbeat throughout."
