Following two highly acclaimed runs at Curve Leicester in 2015 and the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2017, Sue Townsend's The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 the musical is to transfer to London's Ambassadors Theatre for a limited season in June 2019.

The Secret Diary Of Adrian Mole the musical Ambassadors Theatre

Set in 1980s Leicester, this adaptation of Sue Townsend‘s best-selling book is a timeless tale of teenage angst, family struggles and unrequited love, told through the eyes of tortured poet and misunderstood intellectual Adrian Mole. One of the most enduring comedy characters of all time, he is the hapless, hilarious, spotty teenager who captured the zeitgeist of 1980s Britain, and this critically acclaimed production brings Adrian’s story to life for a new generation of theatregoers.

The Townsend family said, “Sue loved West End theatre, and she loved working with Jake and Pippa on the creation of this show. We're very happy for her and Mole that thirty years after his last appearance, a new generation has brought him back.” The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾- The Musical has choreography by Rebecca Howell, set and costume design by Tom Rogers, lighting design by Howard Hudson, musical direction by Mark Collins, musical supervision & orchestrations by Paul Herbert and children’s casting by Jo Hawes CDG. Sue Townsend’s The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾ - The Musical, will open at the Ambassadors Theatre for a limited season from 15 June until 12 October 2019. The musical has book and lyrics by Jake Brunger, music and lyrics by Pippa Cleary and direction by Luke Sheppard. Casting to be announced.
