THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK - Arizona Theatre Company - May 17 – June 03, 2018
Adaptation by WENDY KESSELMAN
Directed by DAVID IRA GOLDSTEIN
Co-produced with Geva Theatre Center, Rochester, NY.
Finding hope in the darkest corners. One of the most powerful stories of the 20th century, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic in war-torn Amsterdam. Anne’s daily existence – her fears, her hopes, her laughter, her grief, and her family’s desperate attempt to preserve humanity in an inhumane world – drive this transcendently powerful true-life tale. Incorporating newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank – as well as survivor accounts – to create an impassioned story of lives of Jews persecuted under Nazi rule, it is a story that continually lingers in our minds throughout the generations because of its optimism and intrinsic truth: the idea that no matter how dire the circumstances, faith in the good of people is what keeps the world in balance – even when all seems lost.
