Every Brilliant Thing

An Tobar & Mull Theatre presents

Every Brilliant Thing

by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

Directed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord

Heart-wrenching, hilarious… possibly one of the the funniest plays you will ever see, full stop

You're seven years old. Mum's in hospital. Dad says she's 'done something stupid'. She finds it hard to be happy.

You make a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.

  1. Ice cream

  2. Water fights

  3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV

  4. The colour yellow

  5. Things with stripes

  6. Rollercoasters

  7. People falling over

You leave it on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling.

A hilarious play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.Based on true and untrue stories.

The Dock Brief by John Mortimer

What happens when an unsuccessful murderer meets an even more unsuccessful barrister?

Budgie fancier Herbert Fowle has murdered his wife because she laughed too much, and he is now on trial. His only hope rests with Morgenhall, his court appointed barrister. However, Morgenhall has never won a case. Can Morgenhall change his lifelong losing streak and free Mr Fowle?

The Dock Brief has been performed all around the world, made into a film starring Peter Sellers and acted by two convicted criminals in Alcatraz.

Rapture's new exciting production of this classic play stars Scottish theatre legend  and award winning performer John Bett as Morgenhall alongside East Enders actor and popular  panto dame Nick Wilton as Fowle

In the style of the treasured Ealing style comedies and written by the acclaimed writer of Rumpole of the Bailey, The Dock Brief is a delightful comedy about the law, life

and love!

Enjoy great company, a light lunch and a classic short play!
