2024 Theatre Season.

Journey through the naive, cringeworthy and obsession-driven teen years of Kay; a girl with a penchant for drinking Smirnoff Vodka at beach parties and writing Fan Fiction during math class. Cracking open her real-life teenage diaries that have been buried away, Kay rides a wave of nostalgia to ask tough questions about the woman she has become.

Equal parts funny and heart-breaking, this solo show effortlessly weaves storytelling and live music. 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.

​“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 

“Proudlove is the consummate performer, delighting crowds between songs and delivering lyric driven music that is instantly relatable.”  Gareth Evan, Timber and Steel  

“One of those no longer hidden talents . . . If you haven’t heard her yet, this is a gap you need to immediately fill.” Chuck Moore, Reviews About
