Francis Goodrich & Albert Hackett - NEW EDITION adapted Wendy Kesselman

Published by Dramatists Play Service

5 Male 5 Female

In this gripping new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, from the original stage play by Goodrich and Hackett, newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary impassioned story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule

Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit and determination

An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, it captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence-their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief

A new adaptation for a new generation
