Dear Diary LOL is an ensemble-driven comedic theatre work born verbatim from the real-life tween-teen diaries of the show's creators. Antigravity's devising ensemble invites you to cringe, laugh, and cry at their most earnest desires, deepest fears, secret shames, and terrible poetry written as coming-of-age girls in the late 90s/early 2000s. Dear Diary LOL explodes its source diaries with moments of direct address, music, dance, and physical comedy, colliding the style of melodrama with the inherent humor found in the earnestness of young girlhood musings (with all the benefits of hindsight).

Antigravity Performance Project is a devised theatre company with a creative aesthetic rooted in play, ensemble, movement, music, and found text. As an interstate company, Antigravity makes work in RI, PA, and NY led by Kym Moore (Providence, RI), Francesca Montanile Lyons (Philadelphia), and Michael T. Williams (New York City). The New York Times calls their work "energizing and frightening".
