Following critical and audience acclaim after its sell out performances in Manchester last year, award-winning theatre company Art with Heart premiere a revised version of Secret Diaries, Sarah Evans’ heart-warming and humorous play at Square Chapel Centre for the Arts, Halifax.
“A remarkable piece of new writing.” Public Reviews
Best days of you life? Declaring war on the girl stealing your best friend, realising you’re gay, falling in love, facing rejection… but one day you’ll wake up happy in your own skin laughing about writing your diary on a tear stained page. Maybe…
“Great theatre that will fill people with hope.”
The Good Review
Inspired by a true story, Secret Diaries follows the story of Hayley as she tries to find her way in the world, from her awkward teenage years in the 80s to the present day where she is faced with the responsibilities of adulthood. Set to a backdrop of 80s hits, Secret Diaries sees Hayley laugh, dance and fight with her best friend Debbie, and love, cry and question her Dad as she faces difficult life choices.
Winner of ‘Theatre Production the Year 2013’ voted for by the public in The Co-operative ‘Loved by You’ awards.
Laugh, love and capture youth with this beautiful and honest look at the world through teenage eyes. After all, isn’t life a playground?
