Laughter is the antidote to all things. When mom is depressed, a young child sets out to assemble a list of all the things that make life wonderful. From “ice cream” to “sunshine” to “laughing so hard milk shoots out your nose.” Soon the list takes on a life of its own. Told in collaboration with the audience, this uplifting story explores resilience, and the lengths we will go for those we love. “One of the funniest plays you’ll ever see about depression—and possibly one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see, full stop” - The Guardian. Southwest Missouri premiere.
