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; 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." ★★★★★ What’s On Stage

"A Super Happy Story is as good as it gets in Edinburgh." ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide
