This solo piece, written by British playwright Duncan Macmillan and comedian Jonny Donahoe, tells the story of a seven-year boy who consoles himself from the harshness around him – his mother has just attempted suicide, his father is distant and insensitive – by creating a list of everything that makes him happy, everything that makes life worth living. The list becomes more than just a way to ward off the depression that stalks him as relentlessly as it has his mother. As we follow the boy to manhood, watching him deal with school, death, another parental suicide attempt, and falling in and out of love, we see how the list becomes a touchstone that he returns to at trying (or triumphant) times in his life.
