Sue Townsend's best-selling book is brought to life in a new musical adaptation.
80s teenager, Adrian Mole, confesses his adolescent struggles in this heartwarming adaptation of Sue Townsend's comedic novel. Book and lyrics by Jake Brunger, music and lyrics by Pippa Cleary, directed by Luke Sheppard.
Sue Townsend's classic story about a nerdy teen makes a solid West End musical...However much the musical makes clunky on-the-nose references to Greer-era feminism, it ends up feeling oddly Victorian in its values. And no one finds that charming.
