Adrian Mole’s worst kept secret (his diary) is almost ready for the West End. But before we find out Adrian’s deepest, darkest thoughts and secrets, we’ve got some great rehearsal pictures from The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾ The Musical to share (all photos were taken by Pamela Raith).
Based on the best-selling book by the legendary Sue Townsend, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13¾ – The Musical is a brand new stage adaptation. It’s already had success with runs at Curve and the Menier Chocolate Factory, and now it’s almost ready for audiences at the Ambassadors Theatre.
Set in 1980s Leicester, the show is the timeless tale of teenage angst, family struggles and unrequited love, told through the eyes of tortured poet and misunderstood intellectual Adrian Mole.
Performing for audiences from 15 June – 12 October, the cast includes Rosemary Ashe as Grandma, Lara Denning as Miss Elf/Doreen Slater, John Hopkins as Mr Lucas/Mr Scruton, Andrew Langtree as George, Amy Ellen Richardson as Pauline, and Ian Talbot OBE as Bert Baxtor. Also in the cast are Holly Ashton and Mathew Craig and a child cast of 16 who will alternate their roles.
