Rated five-stars in its previous stage productions, the musical is a refreshing take suitable for all ages. Watch The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 ¾ and go on a rollercoaster journey with Adrian as he navigates his crush, bully, family, and mostly pimples!

About the Show

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 ¾ is based on the book by Sue Townsend who is said to have worked on the initial production until her death in 2014. It was adapted to stage by Jake Brunger with music by Pippa Cleary. The duo has a repertoire of family-friendly plays and musicals like ‘Jet! Set! Go!’, ‘The Great British Opera,’ ‘Malory Towers’, and ‘Little Red Riding Hood.’ The musical is directed by Luke Sheppard, whose previous production ‘In the Heights’ has won three Olivier awards. The rest of the creative team includes Rebecca Howell (Choreographer), and Tom Rogers (Set and Costume Designer.

The Story

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 ¾ follows the life of an awkward teenager Adrian Mole who lives in Leicester City in the 1980s. The musical is based on the novel of the same name, and while the book is a part of a seven-part series, the musical is heavily inspired by the first book. Adrian faces all the tragedies that befall any teenager – unexpected pimples, crushes, bullies, and a dysfunctional family.

What sets Adrian apart is his curiosity and intellect bordering on the precocious; he has opinions on everything, even Margaret Thatcher! He has to deal with his affections towards his new crush Pandora Braithwaite, negotiate with his bully Barry Kent and try to make sense of his mum leaving his dad for their next-door neighbor. Watch the fun and exciting musical to find out what happens to Adrian Mole!
