Poignant and humorous, the story of a young boy who attempts to ease his mother’s depression by starting an enormous running list of everything worth living for.

You’re six years old. Mom’s in the 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 play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.

VIP reserved seating: the best seats will be waiting with your name on them when you arrive.
