Dear Diary

After winning the hearts of Wollongong audiences with her MERRIGONGX debut in 2022, Kay Proudlove’s endearing comedy about the agony of growing up, Dear Diary, returns to Wollongong as part of a national tour from the 8th to 11th May.


Phenomenal South Coast Singer-Songwriter, Kay Proudlove, brings her formidable talent and infectious personality to the stage in Dear Diary, directed by Merrigong’s Artistic Development Manager Leland Kean (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As Luck Would Have It).


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


With wry humour and confessional stories, Dear Diary was produced with support from Merrigong Theatre Company’s Artist Development Program, with narrative support from dramaturg Phil Spencer (The Smallest Hour).
