You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy.
You make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world.
Everything worth living for.
- Ice cream
- Water fights
- Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV
- The colour yellow
- Things with stripes
- People falling over
A play about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.
Based on true and untrue stories.
