Save 40% to see the ‘secret’ Adrian Mole musical
June 12, 2019
Adrian Mole was a hapless, hilarious, spotty teenager who captured the zeitgeist of the 1980s. Today, he is 50¾, but he’s a fictional character by writer Sue Townsend. The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾. was her debut novel in 1982. Her soppy, spotty hero became a household name.
Making a song and dance about teen angst
Finally, after a 40 years wait, Adrian Mole’s popularity rises again for a new generation in a musical. It is based on the first of the late Townsend’s two bestselling books in the series.
Specifically, it follows teenager, Adrian Mole, as he grapples with the onset of puberty. In addition, unrequited love, tortuous poetry, dysfunctional family life and his misguided belief that he is an undiscovered intellectual genius – things we can all relate to.
Furthermore, it has an infectious score and a script as side-splittingly outrageous as the original novel this joyous new musical adaptation brings Adrian’s story to life for a new generation of theatregoers.
