A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) - By Silent Uproar
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.
