In Good Company Tour
A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad) is part of an In Good Company subsidised tour that will involve the East & West Midlands’ artist development scheme presenting the show to develop audiences for contemporary work in IGC venues.
Ben Anderson (In Good Company Producer based at Derby Theatre):
“I'm super happy that we've got this show returning to the region as part of our In Good Company programme. It is key to our ambition of developing audiences for contemporary work. We want to make supporting the mental health and wellbeing of the independent sector a key priority issue with in the arts, and Silent Uproar have developed a great piece of theatre exploring this”.
A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)
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.
This project is co-produced by Silent Uproar, Hull UK City of Culture. With thanks to New Diorama Theatre , Hull City Council, Hull CHCP and house.
