A SUPER HAPPY STORY (ABOUT FEELING SUPER SAD)

‘A mix of wit and low-key emotion that suddenly grips your heart.’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

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.

Silent Uproar prepare to make their first trip to the Edinburgh Fringe this year with their show A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad). Written by Oliver award winner Jon Brittain (Rotterdam and Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho) with music by Matthew Floyd Jones (Frisky and Mannish), prepare for a hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains how it’s OK to not be OK. You’ll definitely laugh, you may cry, and you’ll totally get a song or
two stuck in your head.

Silent Uproar is a Hull-based new writing company, commissioning writers to create playful and provocative work to help make the world a little less shit.

The show has been made with the support of LittleMighty, New Diorama Theatre, Hull UK City of Culture 2017, City Health Care Partnership, Unity Theatre Trust, Hull Truck Theatre, American Chip Spice, and our generous Kickstarter and company supporters.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
