The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, aged 13¾

by Sue Townsend
Directed by Joan Goodwin
3rd – 10th March 1990

This hilarious comedy was adapted for television by Sue Townsend from her international best-seller. It is a satirical comedy of adolescent manners following the efforts of a spotty teenager trying to make sense of the erratic behaviour of the adults around him. The disintegration of his parents’ marriage, threats from the local bully, the first love pains and spots coming out on New Year’s Day are a series of minor tragedies the hero must cope with in the delicate transition period from puberty to manhood.

Definitely a family show.

Part of the Barn’s 1989-1990 Season.
