DEAR DIARY by Kay Proudlove

A play with songs

Dear Diary is a story with songs by Kay Proudlove. Kay is a regional NSW performer, writer and composer who has toured worldwide with her live shows, and worked on various music, theatre and dramatic arts projects.

Kay’s new work takes us on a journey through her 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. Through song and beautiful, disarming storytelling Kay moves the narrative deeper into an exploration of the themes of self-esteem, body image and how to love yourself just as you are through Kay’s own personal journey.

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

Dear Diary was produced with support from Merrigong Theatre Company’s Artist Development Program, with narrative support from dramaturg Phil Spencer (The Smallest Hour) and direction from Merrigong’s Artistic Development Manager Leland Kean.
