You’re seven years old.
Mum’s in hospital.
Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’.
She finds it hard to be happy.
Alle schone dingen is the story of a boy who, in order to give renewed hope to his depressed and suicidal mother, makes a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for.
1. Dame blanche
2. Kung Fu films
3. Staying up late and being allowed to watch TV
4. The colour yellow
Every day, he puts a note under her pillow with something that’s brilliant written on it. "And I know she reads them because they always come back corrected."
Despite the heavy theme, Alle schone dingen is first and foremost a witty, moving and comforting tale in an intimate setting. An actor, a few props and a couple of delightful jazz numbers – nothing else.
In recent years, the monologue Every Brilliant Thing by British playwright Duncan Macmillan has captured the hearts of audiences and critics around the world and it is now playing in Flanders for the first time. Tom Dewispelaere steps into the shoes of the narrator and takes the audience with him on a search for what makes life worth living.
A heart-warming story for these troubled times.
A little present for those willing to help unwrap it.
