The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank
by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
adapted by Wendy Kesselman
Directed by Jay C. Brown

Drama

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. In this
recently adapted version of “The Diary of Anne Frank”, Wendy Kesselman 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unpublished parts of Anne Frank’s real-life diary, allowing the audience to experience Anne in a way that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 complex young woman, and allows the audience to see her as a human being
rather than a saint. In her secret attic, Anne is a familiarly modern teenager who comes of age: she
laughs, plays, fights with her mother, and falls in love for the first time. Despite the horrors that
surround her, Anne’s spirit transcends, as she voices her belief, “in spite of everything, that people are
truly good at heart.” Anne’s dynamism, her luminous spirit, and her story of resilience continue to
resonate deeply, making her story as vital today as when her diary first was published.ww
