'The Diary of Anne Frank' - 2017


The Diary of Anne Frank is one of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century. The memoirs of this young Jewish girl, forced to hide for nearly two years to escape Nazi persecution, are an essential part of how we remember one of the darkest periods of our human history. Wendy Kesselman’s adaptation of the original, Pulitzer Prize award-winning script by Goodrich and Hackett draws from previously unpublished parts of Anne Frank’s real-life diary, allowing the audience to experience Anne in a way that breathes life into this passionate, complex young woman, allowing us to share her relatable experience of adolescence as a familiarly modern teenager. 



Artform are delighted with the audience feedback received for our most recent production:


"We went as a family to see 'The Diary of Anne Frank'. Thought it was absolutely brilliant; so moving, and wonderful to be able to take my 11 year old to see something so important. Otto Frank would be so pleased that Anne's story is still being shown."


"Beautiful direction and acting, I’m going home with mascara all over my face so I think that says it all"


"I can't express how touched I am after watching 'The Diary of Anne Frank' . . what an amazing cast and set"
