If you were to make a list of
everything BRILLIANT about the world,
what would you list?
Opening on our mainstage this week: Every Brilliant Thing, the play described by The Guardian as "one of the funniest plays you'll see about depression."
Claire Marie Mannle inhabits the role – rarely performed by a female protagonist – of a young person determined to list every brilliant thing about life in an attempt to ward off her mother's suicidal tendencies. The joyous, heartbreaking, tender and, yes, surprisingly hilarious play is directed by Michelle Milne.
At the Scoundrel & Scamp, the rehearsal process has reflected our commitment to connect with the wider community. Over the past few weeks, the cast and crew have taken rehearsals 'off campus' to various venues around Tucson, including City High School, Milagro Cohousing, and Palo Verde Behavioral Health. At the venues, Claire and Michelle have engaged people of all ages and backgrounds in the rehearsal process.
Director Michelle Milne: "The practice audiences have been so important to our process. They have given surprising, meaningful responses to the content and its relevance to their lives. I've realized while watching the rehearsal audiences that we can't tell this story without them.
And this speaks to the heart of Every Brilliant Thing, which is about how we keep each other alive, and what it means to be present with each other, and present with the world around us."
