Anne-A New Play

Anne is a new play written in 2014 that adapts  The Diary of Anne Frank. This is a well-constructed theatrical event that includes what Anne’s life might have been like trying to publish her diary in Paris after the war. The production values are superb with lighting effects and scenic projections that beautifully evoke the 1930’s-1940’s as the Frank family hid in the attic. The cast is a bit strident and fails to deliver an emotional resonance beyond what an audience brings to the recreation of these Holocaust horrors. But ultimately this 85 minute version is more effective that previous stage and screen versions due to the authenticity of the writing and plot structure.
