Florida Repertory Theatre’s 22nd season continues next week with performances of the one-man show “Every Brilliant Thing,” by playwright Duncan MacMillian.  The show runs from Feb. 25 through March 29.

The play is an interactive monologue involving a lot of audience participation.  Through tragedy and humor the show tackles heavy themes such as chronic depression, suicide, love, coping with loss and learning to appreciate all those things in life, big and small, that make it worth living.

The 2018 blue-green algae bloom that filled much of Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosahatchee River, and its estuary with thick, green, toxic, algae left no doubt that real solutions to nutrient pollution must be found, not only for the sake of Southwest Florida’s economy, but the health of its citizens.
