A Poignant Look At Depression In "Every Brillant Thing"

The play "Every Brilliant Thing" explores the serious topics of depression and mental illness with a healthy dose of humor and joy. KSJD's Tom Yoder spoke with Sarah Syverson, the actress at the center of the one-woman play, and director Mona Wood-Patterson of the production company Merely Players, about why they feel "Every Brilliant Thing" is an important story to tell right now.

"Every Brilliant Thing" takes the stage November 8th, 9th, and 14th through the 17th at the Hesperus Camp, and on November 12th at the Sunflower Theatre. Tickets and more information are online at
