Confined to a small space for two years, the piques and pleasures and hopes and fears of eight personalities are much harder to contain.

    Through Anne's eyes, the compelling story of eight Jewish people in hiding during the Nazi occupation unfolds. Confined to a small space for two years, the piques and pleasures and hopes and fears of eight personalities are much harder to contain. As tensions build, they find themselves struggling to survive each other just as trying as surviving the war.

    Playwright Wendy Kesselman’s powerful adaptation and an ensemble of diverse actors keep the story alive and vibrant. Performed without intermission, each show will feature a story by a survivor of genocide, including the Holocaust, Rwanda and Darfur.

    Wendy Kesselman will lead a talkback at the 8 PM performance on Friday, November 2nd. Performances will premiere new text by the playwright and will also feature the brilliant set design by scenographer Mirta Tocci.

    • Event Name: The Diary of Anne Frank
      4.5 out of 5 stars rating "Powerful Production"
      Review posted by: Adele Simms from Boston MA, Oct 30, 2012

      Complex, difficult, and emotional production. A diverse cast rises to the challenge. The spare, modern set twists, constrains, encloses. Worth seeing.
