HT: Cardinal Stage to produce one-woman play outdoors

Connie Shakalis | August 8, 2021

If my mom wanted emphatically to reward my sister or me (usually the sister), off to the Indiana state parks we went.

Today, McCormick’s Creek State Park, a geological, historical refuge, offers more than 10 miles of marked hiking trails, Wolf Cave, Twin Bridges and the falls on McCormick’s Creek. And a saddle barn (daily, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) with horse and pony rides. And a swimming pool (closes after Labor Day weekend). And various picnic areas, some with shelters and fireplaces, with many close to drinking water, restrooms or playground equipment. And tennis and fishing (and more). Several shelter houses are sprinkled throughout the park, too, and they are all reservable. Then, of course, there’s the 76-guest-room inn and its restaurant.

And, now, one more good reason to visit — soon.

Cardinal Stage’s production of Duncan Macmillan’s one-woman play about gratitude, “Every Brilliant Thing.” It’s a project stemming from a collaboration between Macmillan and a stand-up comedian and the original performer, Jonny Donahoe.
