January 1st 1981 and I feel absolutely rotten. My mother was up till 2am singing 'My Way' on the upstairs landing.

I think she might be an alcoholic.

This time next year I could be in a children's home.

And as for my father, don't get me started. I caught him feeding cherry brandy to the dog last night. I've a good mind to report him to the RSPCA.

So my first New Year's Resolution is: Never. Drink. Alcohol.

Life’s pretty hard when you’re a 13¾ year-old misunderstood intellectual living in a cul-de-sac in 1981. With dysfunctional parents, ungrateful elders and a growing debt to school bully Barry Kent, Adrian Mole’s life simply couldn’t get any worse. So when luminous new girl Pandora joins Adrian’s class, things look set to change for our hapless hero. She immediately captures his heart, only for his best friend Nigel to steal hers...

Based on the classic bestselling novel by Sue Townsend, York company Pick Me Up Theatre bring this critically acclaimed West End musical and Britain’s best-loved spotty teenager’s story to life for a new generation of theatregoers.

★★★★ "A perfectly realised new British Musical. A lovely, lovely show"
