You’re seven years old. Mom’s in the hospital. Dad says she’s done something stupid. To cheer her up, you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything that’s worth living for. You leave it on her pillow. You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.

For more information about the play, dates and times, or to purchase tickets, please go to our Tickets page.

“This show lodged itself in my mind and in my heart, and it’s going to stay there for a while.”  – Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald


“Not what you would expect in a play.” – Christine Swerczek, Broadway World Omaha
