A musical based on Sue Townsend’s classic teenage tale The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾ will open in the West End later this year.
I have very fond memories of reading the book whilst a teenager myself, and I also remember the TV version which had Julie Walters as Adrian’s mum.
Opening at the Ambassadors Theatre on 15 June and running until 12 October, the musical is based on Sue Townsend’s series of novels about the young intellectual Adrian Mole as he grows up in the 1980s. It originally ran in Leicester in 2015 and again at south London’s Menier Chocolate Factory in 2017.
Casting has yet to be announced.
