In this gripping new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, from the original stage play by Goodrich and Hackett, newly discovered writings from the diary of Anne Frank, as well as survivor accounts, are interwoven to create a contemporary impassioned story of the lives of people persecuted under Nazi rule. This is an adaptation for a new generation able to confront the true horrors of the Holocaust. “Undeniably moving. It shatters the heart. The evening never lets us forget the inhuman darkness waiting to claim its incandescently human heroine.” —NY Times. “An extraordinary theatrical adventure! Go and remember.” —NY Post. “…new DIARY is chillingly honest about the Holocaust. Wendy Kesselman’s work has restored the terror.” —NY Daily News. “Wendy Kesselman’s finely textured new DIARY tells a deeper story. A sensitive, stirring and thoroughly engaging new adaptation.” —NY Newsday. “A powerful new version that moves the audience to gasp, then tears.” —Associated Press. “One of the year’s ten best.” —Time Magazine.
