What's On Stage

Silent Uproar and Hull UK City of Culture present

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.

Recommended age: 14+ (contains strong language and scenes of self harm)

Running time: 1h 10m

Co-produced by Hull UK City of Culture. Tour co-presented with house with support from New Diorama Theatre, Hull City Council, Hull NHS CCG, Little Mighty and Hull Truck Theatre.
