Silent Uproar present

A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

Thursday 11th October, 7:30pm

By Jon Brittain

Co-produced by Hull UK City of Culture. With Support from New Diorama Theatre, Hull City Council, Hull Truck Theatre and house. With thanks to Little Mighty

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.

“You’ll be hard-pushed to find a better musical at this year’s Fringe”

“A Super Happy Story is as good as it gets in Edinburgh”

“Humour that’s as warm as a hug” ★★★★ FEST

“A mix of wit and low-key emotion that suddenly grips your heart” LYN GARDNER, THE GUARDIAN
