Dear Diary

By Kay Proudlove

A play with songs.

Phenomenal South Coast Singer Songwriter, Kay Proudlove brings her formidable talent and infectious personality on stage in Dear Diary, directed by Merrigong Theatre Company’s own Artistic Development Manager, Leland Kean.

Dear Diary takes you on a journey through Kay’s teenage diaries through a collection of intimate and vulnerable stories and songs.

A hilarious, nostalgic and sometimes painful revisiting of our teenage years, which delves into the pressures and expectations of growing up.

“People who’ve seen Kay Proudlove play her songs know she’s whip-smart, hilarious and with the voice of an angel, but seeing Kay turn her own life into a theatre show I saw the depth she has as a writer and performer, and how much extra talent she’s been hiding in those suitcases.”

– Lindsay McDougall, ABC Illawarra
