James Barrett to star in Every Brilliant Thing.

After a busy summer season of concerts and comedies, Globus Theatre is excited to kick off their Fall season with Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan Macmillan – a play that is, in equal parts, both hilarious and heart-wrenching, according to a media release.

Globus Theatre Artistic Producer James Barrett will star in this production. 

Every Brilliant Thing is the story of a young boy whose mother suffers with depression. Knowing that she finds it hard to be happy, he starts to make a list of everything that’s great about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. Every Brilliant Thing. He leaves it on her pillow and knows that she’s read it because she’s corrected his spelling. As he grows up, he adds to the list, and it soon takes on a life of its own.

“At a time when the world is topsy-turvy and there are so many worries and stresses, it seems right and fitting that we produce this wonderful script that talks about feeling despair and, in turn, pinpoints all the positives one can find in life: from ice cream to falling in love to peeing in the sea and nobody knowing,” says Sarah Quick, artistic director.

“The audience and our narrator will journey through this list of happiness-inducing things together and our hope is that our audience experience a truly unforgettable theatrical experience.” 

A graduate of Fenelon Falls Secondary School, Barrett earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Windsor. Since then, he has been a professional actor in theatre, film and television for over 30 years.
