The Diary of Anne Frank
by Vexler Theatre
Oct. 20 - Nov. 13, 2016
- DIRECTED BY: Eva Laporte
- In this gripping adaptation, recently discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary, impassioned story.
In this transcendently powerful adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, "The Diary of Anne Frank" captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence - their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.
Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!"
The suggested age for this production is 13 and up. Under 13, parental discretion is advised.
