“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.”
A new play from Paines Plough and Pentabus Theatre Company about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love. Based on true and untrue stories.
Heart-wrenching, hilarious… possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see.
