The Happiness Box
An SSO Family Concert

An inspiring story of friendship and courage with music by Australian film composer Bryony Marks.

The Happiness Box is the inspiring story of three friends – a lizard, a monkey and a frog – who find a magical box and embark on a journey through the jungle to discover the secret of happiness. The story was written in secret in 1942 by two Australian Prisoners of War (David Griffin and Leslie Greener) to lift the spirits of the child prisoners in Changi Jail. Now Australian film and TV composer Bryony Marks (Please Like Me, Barracuda) has captured the wonder of the friends’ adventure in a musical celebration of humour, courage and friendship.
