The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Information

The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13¾, the musical adaptation of Sue Townsend's novel, is set to transfer to the West End's Ambassadors Theatre this summer. 

Set in 1980s Leicester, we follow 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?

With an infectious score and a script which stays true to the original novel, this heart-warming  musical will bring Adrian's story to life for a new generation.

Book and lyrics are by Jake Brunger, music and lyrics are by Pippa Cleary and the show is directed by Luke Sheppard.
