A Super Happy Story - About Feeling Super Sad (Edinburgh Festival Fringe)

A Super Happy Story - About Feeling Super Sad (Edinburgh Festival Fringe)


Sally is a happy person, but she’s also got an illness – one that makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be.

Guys, you don’t have to worry - this is a happy story! It is SO happy. If it were a food it would be Skittles, if it were a day it would be Friday night, if it were a person it would be a really cute puppy! It is really, really, really happy. It’s got a happy ending, it’s got a happy middle, everything turns out OK and everyone lives happily ever after. This is a happy story. But it’s also one that’s about depression.

Written by Jon Brittain (Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho, Rotterdam, What Would Spock Do?) with music by Matthew Floyd Jones (Mannish from Frisky and Mannish).

The show has been made with the support and help of Fruit in Hull, The Marlowe Studio Theatre, Slung Low’s HUB, City Health Care Partnership, Arts Council England, Hull City Council and It is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.
