January 21 AND NOW EXTENDED TO February 8, 2020
LONDON, ONTARIO, January 16, 2020—The Grand Theatre is excited to welcome back award-winning actor and improviser Rebecca Northan in the touching one-person play, EVERY BRILLIANT THING. Described as a heart-warming show that explores life’s simple joys, and conversely, the extreme hardships we face, this unique production is not only something to be seen, but something to be experienced. “Rebecca uses many audience members to assist, and take us all on a shared experience where we will remind ourselves and each other of the ups and downs of living—and the brilliant things worth remembering,” says Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum.
London audiences will remember Ms. Northan from her previous successful productions at the Grand—BLIND DATE, AN UNDISCOVERED SHAKESPEARE, and most recently, THIS LONDON LIFE.
Director Liza Balkan describes this play as “an extraordinary journey through the curious, wild, hard, funny, familiar, and deeply human enquiry: what makes life worth living…It is also an exhilarating, magical piece about really listening, and about community.”
Title Sponsor for EVERY BRILLIANT THING is Selectpath Benefits & Financial Inc.
With a number of performances already sold out or close to capacity, the Grand is thrilled to announce an extension of the show with five added performances from Tuesday, February 4 to Saturday, February 8. Tickets for the extension are now on sale online or by calling the box office.
The Grand Theatre gratefully acknowledges its 2019/2020 Season Sponsor - BMO Financial Group.
