The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank

By Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett

Adapted by Wendy Kesselman

Directed by David Bradley

February 21 - March 31

Leonard C. Haas Stage


Amsterdam, 1942. In a cramped, secret annex, eight Jews attempt to evade Nazi deportation. One of them, a teenage girl with a vibrant spirit and a gift for writing, chronicles their harrowing experiences in her diary. Wendy Kesselman’s adaptation captures the immediacy of Anne Frank’s voice and the courage and terror of life in hiding from Hitler’s genocide of the Jews. Our production, featuring a multi-racial cast, honors this “undeniably moving” (The New York Times) story as it speaks to today’s increasingly nationalistic world.
