Artform are delighted to announce our forthcoming production:
THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
Directed by PETE WATTS ( Blood Brothers) and SHEILA ARDEN (A Little Night Music, Avenue Q, Into the Woods, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Blood Brothers, Assassins)
An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis, 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.
In this gripping new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, from the original stage play by Goodrich and Hackett; newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule. This is an adaptation for a new generation able to confront the true horrors of the Holocaust.
