In late 2019 / early 2020, actors from the Utah Shakespeare Festival set out to perform Duncan Macmillan’s play “Every Brilliant Thing” for high school students across Utah. The play blends the topic of mental health with the tragedy & comedy of theatre, creating a safe space for teens to talk openly about their struggles with suicide and depression, and build on the strength of one another.
