#DearDiary

BY Andi Snelling | 19-Apr-2016
What if your past could speak to you? Following the huge success of Melbourne Fringe 2015, and a completely sold-out season at Adelaide Fringe 2016, Andi Snelling's critically-acclaimed solo debut #DearDiary returns to The Butterfly Club for an encore season. #DearDiary
Unwittingly written over 24 years, #DearDiary is an existential joyride into forgotten memories. Pulled verbatim from 5,000+ pages of her lifelong diary collection, Andi Snelling's comically tragic tale unpacks the baggage we all carry. With self-quoting satire, physical storytelling and song, Andi bares her soul and hashtags the heck out of it.
