Diary of a Teenage Girl
1st March 2017 – 25th March 2017
Minnie’s sexual awakening begins in 1976 as the hippie movement fades and punk rock is on the rise. Yearning to be loved and treated like a grown-up, her rebellious teenage nature clashes with the newfound demands and responsibilities of adulthood.
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…
Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, which was later turned into a major award-winning motion picture film starring Bel Powley, Alexander Skarsgård and Kristen Wiig, Marielle Heller’s explosive play is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.
“A lacerating indictment of predatory male self-indulgence” The New York Times

“A moving no-bullshit exploration of the lives of young people and the older people who shape them, I’m almost willing to buy you the tickets myself.” CBR
