Phenomenal NSW South Coast Singer-Songwriter Kay Proudlove brings her formidable talent and infectious personality to the stage in Dear Diary, directed by Leland Kean.

Dear Diary takes us on a journey through Kay’s teenage diaries through a collection of intimate and vulnerable stories and songs. From first kisses, girl power, spice world, and Elijah Wood fan fiction to lost gigs, found memories and frayed friendships, Dear Diary is a hilarious, nostalgic and sometimes painful revisiting of our teenage years, delving into the pressures and expectations of growing up.

With wry humour and confessional stories, Dear Diary asks us to look at what we hold on to in our lives and when it’s the right time to let them go, if ever.

“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
