A Super Happy Story

Production Company: Silent Uproar
Venue: The Corn Hall

By Jon Brittain. Music by Matthew Floyd Jones

co-produced by Hull UK City of Culture.

Tour co-presented with house with support from New Diorama Theatre, Little Mighty, Hull City Council and Hull Truck Theatre


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.

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains, sings and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK.

It’s joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! (Except for all the bits about depression).


Winner of a 2017 Fringe First and the Musical Theatre ReviewBest Musical award.
