THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK dramatised by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett

Tuesday 29 October – Saturday 2 November 2019

7.30pm

£14 (Conc. £11.50)

 

Few more poignant true stories emerged from World War II than the diary of young Anne Frank. Published long afterwards by her father, the only family survivor, it records the minutiae of twenty-five months that two Jewish families spent in hiding from the Gestapo in an Amsterdam warehouse attic.

Though ultimately tragic, the story offers an inspirational and uplifting view of humanity struggling to survive in adversity. Amidst the despair there is always optimism, love and even the beginnings of romance, awakening within the heart of an effervescent teenager.
