Open Stage brings this important play back for it’s 25th season!

One of the most famous and haunting stories to emerge from the 20th Century, the memoirs of a 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. This adaptation draws from previously unpublished parts of Anne Frank’s real-life diary, allowing the audience to experience Anne in a way that breathes life into this passionate, complex young woman. In the “Secret Annex,”, Anne comes of age: she laughs, plays, fights with her mother, and falls in love for the first time. In spite of her oppressive circumstances and 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.” The inspiring story of perseverance and hope serves as a timeless lesson that the spirit of a child is impossible to deny.

You’ll enjoy The Diary of Anne Frank, if you enjoy: powerful and moving stories of resilience, historical accounts that bring the past to life
