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. The Diary of Anne Frank was originally adapted for stage by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. The original Broadway production received the 1956 Tony Award for Best Play and the script received the 1956 Pulitzer Prize for drama. Goodrich and Hackett also adapted the play for screen in 1959. This is a new adaptation for a new generation.
