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 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.

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

Written by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam), with music by Frisky and Mannish’s Matthew Floyd Jones. Winner of a 2017 Fringe First and the Musical Theatre Review Best Musical.

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

WHY? ‘A mix of wit and low-key emotion that suddenly grips your heart’ The Guardian

The Muddy Choir

Written by Jesse Briton

“Nee killing, anly singing, and we all go home together.”

It is November 1917 and the Third Battle of Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Robbie and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home.

United by their childhood oath “nee killing, anly singing”, Robbie dreams their music will be a ticket away from the front, but attracting the attention of their commanding officers may prove more dangerous than bullets and gas.

Nominated for Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers Guild of Great Britain Awards 2015, The Muddy Choir tells the story of three soldiers serving with the Durham Light Infantry. Including traditional wartime songs, it is a play about childhood friends growing up in unbearable circumstances and the humanising power of music.

WHY? 'A sensitive memorial to a generation of young men' ★★★★ The Stage

Suitable for ages 13+ years.
