Meet Janet. Janet is sad. Not about her life, about the world. Have you seen it? That’s why she works at a dog shelter in the woods, where she can wear a giant coat and avoid human contact.
The thing is, she’s not out to make anyone else sad. She’s not turning up to weddings shouting that most marriages end in divorce. She can still be (kind of) normal when she wants to, she just doesn’t want to, most of the time.
But when her family stage an intervention, and her doctor offers her a new pill that promises one day off from being sad, even Janet is curious. However, experimenting with happiness causes unexpected side-effects for all involved…
Hilarious, provocative and profound, Sad Janet is the antidote for our happiness-obsessed times.
