An epic celebration of life’s small joys driven by audience participation
Ice cream, roller-coasters, the smell of old books—how does a child growing into a teenager, then into a young woman, wrestle with the fact that her Mom is so unhappy? She writes lists of everything that makes life worth living. She leaves them on her Mom’s pillow. She knows her Mom has read them because the spelling’s been corrected. A surprisingly funny show about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.
“Engaging and empathetic... one of the best plays of the year.” — Now Magazine

“One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see” —The Guardian

I saw this production at Fire Exit Theatre in Calgary last year. It was one of the most extraordinarily entertaining, funny, interactive, and emotionally uplifting plays I have ever seen. The show was packed, and the audience loved it! This will be an experience like none we’ve ever had in our theatres—an interactive audience participation wonder that disarms, informs, and charms us.
