Next to Normal is a contemporary family drama, about a woman’s struggle with mental illness, and the effects of her illness on her family. At the opening of the show, Diana seems to have an ideal life – she is educated,well-off, and happily married with two teenage children. But it soon becomes clear that all is not as it seems. Diana has bipolar disorder, plagued with anxieties, mood swings and delusions that trace back to a family tragedy 16 years earlier and are growing worse with time.

Though the family strives to establish some sort of normality, and each character seeks his or her own peace and happiness, the ties that bind slowly and inexorably unravel around them. Next to Normal is considered a rock musical, and much of the story is told through song. The melodies are often interwoven, and the action moves back and forth among simultaneous scenes, as well as between literal and psychological realities. Though serious in focus, the play is full of surprises and humour as well.
