A Canadian Stage Production

Playwright(s): Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

directed by:

featuring:
Kristen Thomson

Ice cream, rollercoasters, the smell of old books — as a mother battles chronic depression, a child creates a list of everything that makes life worth living. As time passes and the list grows, what began as a naive attempt to deal with tragedy becomes an epic chronicle of life's small joys. Staged in an in-the-round setting, this touching, funny and intimate solo piece charts the lengths we will go for those we love.

Heart-wrenching, hilarious ... possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop
