by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

adapted by Wendy Kesselman

Directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell

This new adaptation brings us into the secret annex where 13-year-old Anne and seven other Jews evade Nazi deportation. For over two years, all that will stand between them and the concentration camps is their trust in one another and the bravery of those harboring them. Anne's compelling words come alive and urge us to stand up for one another in the face of intolerance, fear, and hate.

Setting: A secret annex
