A Super Happy Story ​(About Feeling Super Sad)

Presented by Silent Uproar

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.)

About the company

Silent Uproar

​Silent Uproar are a Hull-based theatre company setting out to create work for cinema lovers, comedy fans and Netflix users. They then tell them stories that will provide a fun night out & make the world a little bit less shit.

Silent Uproar believe that you don't have to be 'serious' to say something 'serious' this is something that has stuck with us from the beginning: Their work is playful, provocative and riddled with pop-culture.

The company creates work as a continually changing ensemble, working with new writers, musicians, technicians and artists to create bold and entertaining new work.
