Based up on the book Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

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

Winner of the 1956 Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, Critics' Circle Award, and virtually every other coveted prize of the theatre, very few plays have moved the Broadway critics to write such glowing notices...


"a moving document on the stage" ~ NY Post

"A lovely tender drama Strange how the shining spirit of a young girl now dead can filter down through the years and inspire a group of theatrical professionals in a foreign land" ~ NY Times

"The precise quality of [THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK] is the quality of glowing, ineradicable life - life in its warmth, its wonder, its spasms of anguish and its wild and flaring humor Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett have fashioned a wonderfully sensitive and theatrically craftsmanlike narrative out of the real-life legacy left us by a spirited and straightforward Jewish girlas bright and shining as a banner" ~ NY Herald-Tribune

"There is so much beauty, warm humor, gentle pity it is difficult to imagine how this play could be contained in one set on one stage this is a fine drama" ~ NY Daily News
