'The Diary of a Teenage Girl' at Southwark Playhouse

  • Highlights:

    • Expulsion, drugs, adultery and an alcoholic mother are the topics of conversation in this explosive new production at Southwark Playhouse as sharp as it is provocative. 
    • ‘The Diary of a Teenage Girl’ recounts the coming-of-age adventures of Minnie Goetze, a San Francisco teenager who begins a secret affair with her mother’s boyfriend. 
    • Narrating her story in a diary through brutally honest depictions of her life, the play makes for a poignant look into Minnie’s teenage years. 
    • If you think you can hack the drama of such an ugly adolescence, snap up a ticket for just £15.

    More details:

    Based on a graphic (in more ways than one) novel by Phoebe Gloeckner which later became a film starring Kristen Wiig, ‘The Diary of a Teenage Girl’ is a far cry from what springs to mind when you picture your average teenage girl’s diary. 

    Growing up in the chaos of ‘70s San Fransico, 15-year-old Minnie Goetze begins a secret affair with Monroe, a man more than twice her age… and her mother’s boyfriend. Lonely and artistic, Minnie chronicles her trials through expressive drawings and painfully honest missives confided to a tape recorder - but it’s only a matter of time before this precocious teen is in way over her head.

    Sure to move even the most impassive audience members, you should probably look elsewhere for Mother’s Day ideas…
