Photos: First Look at THE SECRET DIARY OF ADRIAN MOLE AGED 13 ¾ at Menier Chocolate Factory

"Honestly. My family just don't understand me. Perhaps when I am famous and my diary is discovered people will understand the torment of being a 13 ¾ year old intellectual" Adrian Mole.

Set in 1980s Leicester, Sue Townsend's The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 ¾, follows the daily dramas and misadventures of Adrian's adolescent life. With dysfunctional parents, ungrateful elders, a growing debt to school bully Barry Kent and an unruly pimple on his chin, life is hard for a misunderstood intellectual who is only 13 ¾... To top it off, when new girl Pandora captures his heart, his best friend Nigel steals hers. Can Adrian win back her love and escape his chaotic family life?

With an infectious original score, this new adaptation rediscovers this much-loved novel and brings Adrian's story to life once more.

The production will open at the Menier on 26 July at 3.30pm and runs until 9 September.
