"If you live a long life and get to the end of it without ever once having felt crushingly depressed, then you probably haven't been paying attention."

theatrethreesixty brings to USJ Taipan the restaging of Duncan Macmillian's EVERY BRILLIANT THING – a funny, quirky but ultimately reflective one man show about exploring depression and those who must live with, and around it every day. While closing out theatrethreesixty's 2017 season – it is also the debut performance for Lot'ng Art Space, a brand-new theatre in the heart of the USJ Taipan business centre.

You're 7 years old. Mum's in hospital. Dad says that she's "done something stupid." She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything that's brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for. You leave it on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling.

EVERY BRILLIANT THING brings audiences an interactive theatrical event that British newspaper The Guardian describes as “one of the funniest plays you'll ever see about depression”. Qahar Aqilah (The Pillowman, Angels in America), with direction from Christopher Ling, theatrethreesixty's artistic director, enlists the audience in unfolding a story that is side-splittingly funny and heart-breaking all at the same time.

Christopher further explains why: “To be given the opportunity to work on a play as this with an actor of Qahar's calibre is a rare treat. Knowing that EVERY BRILLIANT THING fits hand-in-glove with Qahar the consummate actor and Qahar the improv expert as well as slick host almost makes me feel like it was written for him to perform,”

Performed in Lot'ng (short for Loteng) – a brand new joint venture between Elias Projects and theatrethreesixty, EVERY BRILLIANT THING makes full use of Lot'ng's fully equipped black box theatre – bringing audiences as close to Qahar's stellar performance as possible.

Lot'ng is both a performance space and a rehearsal space – with a black box and a studio, it is a place where people are encouraged to grow and develop their skills, making the arts more assessable to all in the Subang Jaya area and beyond.

EVERY BRILLIANT THING may be closing out theatrethreesixty's 2017 season RIGHT NOW, but it is the beginning of a new chapter of bringing good theatre to all Malaysian audiences.
