You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you
start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. 1. Ice cream. 2. Kung Fu movies. 3. Burning things. 4. Laughing so hard you shoot milk out
your nose. 5. Construction cranes. 6. Me. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.
A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
This play contains adult language and themes.
