'WHAT AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE IT IS TO BE ABLE TO OFFER A FULL-THROATED COMMENDATION OF THAT RAREST OF BEASTS, A PERFECTLY REALISED NEW BRITISH MUSICAL. A WARMLY APPEALING BULLETIN FROM MORE INNOCENT TIMES, FULL OF MEMORABLE, HUMMABLE SONGS. A LOVELY, LOVELY SHOW'

FIONA MOUNTFORD, EVENING STANDARD

THIS JOYOUS NEW MUSICAL ADAPTATION OF SUE TOWNSEND‘S BEST-SELLING BOOK THE SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE AGED 13 ¾ -THE MUSICAL ARRIVES IN LONDON FOR A STRICTLY LIMITED SEASON! 
A TIMELESS TALE OF TEENAGE ANGST, FAMILY STRUGGLES AND UNREQUITED LOVE, TOLD THROUGH THE EYES OF TORTURED POET AND MISUNDERSTOOD INTELLECTUAL ADRIAN MOLE. ONE OF THE MOST ENDURING COMEDY CHARACTERS OF ALL TIME, HE’S THE HAPLESS, HILARIOUS, SPOTTY TEENAGER WHO CAPTURED THE ZEITGEIST OF 1980S BRITAIN.
WITH AN INFECTIOUS SCORE AND A SCRIPT AS SIDESPLITTINGLY OUTRAGEOUS AS THE ORIGINAL NOVEL, THIS CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED PRODUCTION BRINGS ADRIAN’S STORY TO LIFE FOR A NEW GENERATION OF THEATREGOERS.
BOOK AND LYRICS BY JAKE BRUNGER, MUSIC AND LYRICS BY PIPPA CLEARY, DIRECTED BY LUKE SHEPPARD.
