But before writing the screenplay, Heller adapted the novel into a one act play. The Diary of a Teenage Girl premiered in New York 2010 and now comes to London for a UK premiere at Southwark Playhouse.
With a confessional, candid account of 15-year-old Minnie Goetze's secret affair with her mother's boyfriend it's an intense prospect on stage. But there's a sharpness and absence of judgement to the writing that makes Minnie's story as funny as it is provocative.
