The Diary of Anne Frank

Presented by Weathervane Playhouse at Weathervane Playhouse, Akron OH

Apr 04 - 20
The Diary of Anne Frank

Running April 4 to 20, 2019

“The Diary of Anne Frank”
A drama adapted by Wendy Kesselman from the play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett
Directed by Terrence Spivey

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman (from the original stage play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett), newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank — as well as survivor accounts — are interwoven to create a contemporary and impassioned story. This is a new adaptation for a new generation in which Anne Frank emerges from history as 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 emotionally heartfelt drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic during World War II, The Diary of Anne Frank captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence — their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief.
