A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

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 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.

Written by Olivier award winner Jon Brittain (Rotterdam and Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho) with music by Matthew Floyd Jones (Frisky & Mannish). It's a joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy show!

Except for the bits about depression.

"A Super Happy Story is superb... Undoubtedly the most uplifting show about depression since Every Brilliant Thing." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

★★★★★ "Everyone could benefit from seeing this super story" WhatsOnStage

Suitable for ages 14+. Occasional strong language and scenes that depict self harm are part of the performance.
