Inspired by a true story and set to a soundtrack of 80s and 90s guilty pleasures, Secret Diaries charts the big stuff in life from teenage years adulthood.

Declaring war on the girl stealing your best friend, striking a pose to Vogue, realising you’re gay and falling in love, facing rejection. But one day you’ll be happy in your own skin and you’ll laugh about all of that stuff.

This inclusive, honest story questions acceptance and allows you to challenge your own opinions on friendship, love, society, power, family values and discrimination.

Suitable for Key Stage 4, Secret Diaries runs for 1 hour with an after-show workshop for school groups.
