The list began when he was seven, after his mother’s first attempt. A list of everything that makes life worth living. 1. Ice cream, 2. Water fights, 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch tv, 4. The color yellow, 5. Things with stripes, 6. Rollercoasters, 7. People falling over. As our narrator experiences university, love, and his first heartbreak, the list grows to encapsulate thousands of reasons to love life, both simple and profound. Peppered with audience interaction and the music of artists like Ray Charles and Etta James, this intimate, immersive, life-affirming show reminds us of every brilliant thing about the world.
