  • ADRIAN MOLE musical now finalised for the Liverpool Curve for March 2015

  • Jake Brunger and Composition fellow Pippa Cleary have spent the past three years writing a musical adaptation of Sue Townsend's classic novel for the stage.“We asked Sue how we would bring her book to the stage and she said to us, ‘as long as you stick to the book, you will be fine’,” said Jake.
    “Her book has been our bible - and I’ve also read Sue’s autobiography too because we really want to get a sense of her voice and personality onto the stage.” Sue Townsend died in April this year. The first of an eight-book series, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 and Three Quarters was published in 1982 and went on to sell 20 million copies worldwide..
