“Look how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.” – Anne Frank
We know the ending before this story begins. However, her voice and words continue to resonate through the ages. Goodrich and Hackett’s extraordinary Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning adaptation of Anne Frank’s remarkable diary and life in the secret annex is suspenseful, surprisingly humorous and heartwarming. We discover hope and courage during a time of unimaginable horrors.
With the help of the underground, The Franks, van Daans and Mr Dussel survive for over 2 years in hiding. We witness their
claustrophobia, their everyday struggles, family feuds, a budding first love and the growth of a girl becoming a young woman.
This unforgettable story invites us to reflect upon our humanity and choices. It is one that we must continue to tell.
