In 'The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾' at the Menier Chocolate Factory, everyone's favourite spotty teenage intellectual is returning to the stage - as a musical!
Set in 1980s Leicester, Sue Townsend's The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4, follows the daily dramas and misadventures of Adrian's adolescent life. With dysfunctional parents, ungrateful elders, a growing debt to school bully Barry Kent and an unruly pimple on his chin, life is hard for a misunderstood intellectual who is only 13 3/4... To top it off, when new girl Pandora joins the class and captures his heart, his best friend Nigel steals hers. Can Adrian win her love and escape from his chaotic family life?
Luke Sheppard directs the London debut of Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary's musical version of the popular young adult novel series by Sue Townsend, with choreography by Rebecca Howell.
