Cabaret-cum-musical A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) has been raking in the five stars at the Fringe and beyond for dealing with depression in a “joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy” way, getting out in song and prose how it’s OK not to be OK. Think the most uplifting show about being depressed ever, and you’re in the right area. Meet Sally, an apparently happy person who doesn’t let little things get her down and almost never cries – except she does. In private. Written by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain with music by Matthew Floyd Jones, it is co-produced by Silent Uproar and Hull UK City of Culture, and is at The Lowry as part of Musical Rewrites, the venue’s bitesize festival of new musical theatre. ‘A Super Happy Story is superb’, says The Guardian’s Lyn Gardner.
