Back to Ours: A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

Back to Ours Half -Term Festival

Silent Uproar present A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

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.

Joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! Except for the bits about depression.

His luck seems to improve when the perfect candidate arrives at the Tower, Elsie Maynard, a beautiful strolling singer, if only it wasn’t for her husband-to-be, the jester, Jack Point.
