Every Brilliant Thing is a filmed version of Jonny Donahoe’s acclaimed one-man show about depression, suicide and the lengths to which people go for those they love.

You're up late, still playing the John Holmes game or Slap Dat on the computer. You're keeping your pet hamster/rat/mouse awake and he hasn't been walked in hours, he's bored with his wheel, and frankly, wishes he had a warm hole to crawl into. (Who doesn't?) Admit it, you've … [Read more...]
