Back by popular demand: Burnt Thicket Theatre's production that wowed Live Five audiences in 2018!

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for.

1. Ice Cream. 2. Kung Fu Movies. 3. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose…

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

Twenty years and thousands of things later, the list will take on a life of its own. Be drawn in to this astonishingly funny comedy about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love. Based on true and untrue stories.

“Heart-wrenching, hilarious… one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop.” – The Guardian

Critic’s Pick – The New York Times | Critic’s Choice – Los Angeles Times

“The funniest show about depression you’ve ever seen… [It’s] about finding reasons to live… And those reasons can be as minute as wearing a cape and as big as falling in love.” – New York Post

"I saw Burnt Thicket's production last year. It was one of the most extraordinarily entertaining, funny, interactive, and emotionally uplifting plays I have ever seen.”

–Morris Ertman, Rosebud Theatre Artistic Director

"I was blown away by the production and the performance.” –Louis B. Hobson, Calgary Herald theatre reviewer
