New Ohio Theatre presents


Devised and performed by Antigravity Performance Project
Directed by Francesca Montanile Lyons and Michael T. Williams


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 of high-octane funny women 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).

Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission

Tickets $20
Wednesday-Saturday @ 7:30 PM
