PLAY OVERVIEW-1927: The trials and tribulations of a 13 year-old girl never seem to change: sibling rivalry, boys, school dances, boys, homework, and... boys! Red Wing Area SeniorsYoung Clotilde "Coco" Irvine, is the daughter of a lumber baron living in a fashionable Summit Avenue mansion in 1927. For her birthday she is given a diary in which she faithfully chronicles the ups and downs of the roller coaster that is her thirteenth year of life. Coco's Diary leads audiences on a winsome romp alongside our smart, adventurous, mischievous heroine surrounded by the beguiling music of the 1920s. It is charming, funny and delightful entertainment for the entire family.
