The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole
On 26th September A Level and GCSE Drama pupils took a trip to the MAC theatre Belfast to see a production of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole.
The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 by Sue Townsend is a wonderfully comic play that covers the first of the Adrian Mole diaries in which the anti-hero adolescent, undiscovered poet and intellectual tries to deal with his parents’ crumbling marriage, his spots, his school, his unrequited love for Pandora and the erratic behaviour of his dog. All this whilst trying to get his poetry accepted by the BBC!
Sue Townsend’s adaptation of her best- selling book stays true to its source, creating a play filled with music and warmth. Adrian Mole and his secret diary will appeal to theatre-goers young enough to relate and old enough to remember. Bruiser’s stage version will enable Townsend’s humour and pathos to shine, in a fast, witty portrayal of 80s Britain.
