Anne Frank is undoubtedly an icon of the Holocaust; her diary has been published in many languages, and millions of people are familiar with her story.  In this powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, the young Anne Frank emerges from history as a living, lyrical, intensely gifted girl who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination. This impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence. Each day for two dark years, Anne Frank’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 Diary of Anne Frank is generously underwritten, in part, by the Addison Business Association in honor of Robert Mayer, Jr., Atmos Energy, The Dallas Foundation, the 500 Inc.,  Robert Mayer, Jr., Women of WaterTower Theatre.
