“Sally is full of teenage confidence. She knows that she is going to change the world. But on her 16th birthday she senses a shadow – she flunks out of her A-levels and becomes a charity fundraiser. Eventually she gets help and joins a support group. She gets better, and then the depression comes back again. This is a very slickly put together show, written by Jon Brittain and with music by Frisky and Mannish’s Matthew Floyd. It is deceptive: like Sally, it looks all shiny on the surface but underneath there’s a lot going on, some of it very dark. If you enjoyed ‘Every Brilliant Thing’, definitely try this.”


A hilarious cabaret musical about depression, that explains, sings, and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK.

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 all the bits about depression.
