Musical Rewrites returns with this 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.

Performances will be accompanies by a curtain raiser from a new company or artist that we feel is really pushing the boat out on redefining what musical theatre can mean!
