A fun, silly and sad show for anyone whose brain isn't always on their side

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 with original music by Matthew Floyd Jones this new musical comedy mixes storytelling, live music and sketch comedy

★★★★★ "This is a must see for anyone that has felt the effects of depression, but as a society still battling with the right way to deal with mental illness, everyone could benefit from seeing this super story ~
