A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

by Jon Brittain
music by Matthew Floyd Jones

produced by Silent Uproar
co-produced by Hull UK City of Culture
select tour dates co-presented with house
with support from New Diorama Theatre, Little Mighty, Hull City Council and Hull Truck Theatre

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains, sings and throws glitter
about how it’s OK not to be OK.

Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and she almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it.

It’s joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar-coated, unrelenting and completely super happy!
(Except for all the bits about depression).

Written by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam), with music by Frisky and Mannish’s Matthew Floyd Jones, A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) won a 2017 Fringe First and the Musical Theatre Review Best Musical.

Running time:  approximately 1 hour (no interval)
