Directed by Danielle Kays, “The Diary of Anne Frank” is a stage adaptation of the “The Diary of a Young Girl,” a collection of writings from the diary Frank kept for two years in hiding during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands. 

With over 30 million copies of “The Diary of a Young Girl” sold to date, Frank’s story is one of the most widely-known victim accounts of the Holocaust. 

“In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, 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,” reads Evergreen Playhouse’s description of the show. 


A full story and additional photos from The Diary of Anne Frank will be published in The Chronicle next week.
