The Diary of Anne Frank
April 21 - May 7, 2023
By Francis Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Jeff Mandel
This moving and profoundly important drama, drawn from previously unpublished portions of Anne Frank’s famous memoirs, follows Anne’s precarious coming-of-age time as she and her family hide in a secret annex space above her father’s former office in Amsterdam, while the Nazis are daily deporting Dutch Jews to their deaths. Each day of these 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!” This is a new adaptation for a new generation.
The event will feature a 34-banner travelling exhibit in the downstairs Perkins Performance Hall entitled
‘Let Me Be Myself’ The Life Story of Anne Frank.
It shows the story of Anne Frank and contains statements of young people who had experiences with exclusion and discrimination, and serves as an inspiration to think about the consequences of Anne Frank's story for today’s society. 'Let Me Be Myself' is part of the international work of the Anne Frank House that reaches out to 40 countries.
