Ev­ery Bril­liant Thing star­ring Wen Zhang

Shang­hai Dra­matic Arts Cen­ter will stage a Chi­nese ver­sion of Ev­ery Bril­liant Thing writ­ten by Dun­can Macmil­lan fea­tur­ing famed Chi­nese di­rec­tor and ac­tor Wen Zhang, an award win­ner for dozens of pop­u­lar films and TV se­ries. It’s been 12 years since Wen per­formed on­stage. This one-man play fol­lows the story that a boy makes a list of bril­liant things in life for his de­pressed mother and as he grows up and falls in love, the list seems to help him save him­self. When the English play was shown in Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val 2014, the Guardian lauded it as “the fun­ni­est play you’ll see about de­pres­sion,” and over the years dif­fer­ent pro­duc­tions of the play have re­ceived over­whelm­ing pop­u­lar­ity in the UK and North Amer­i­can. The Chi­nese ver­sion will be di­rected by Li Bo­nan, whose ac­claimed works in­clude How Much Love Can be Messed Up and Mr. and Mrs. Sin­gle.
