The Diary of Anne Frank

Wilson Hall Theater

Murray State University
Murray, KY 42071

The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, is a play of international fame and is an important part of both the theatre culture of the world and the state of the world as we see it today. Revisiting this classic play reminds us to never forget, and more importantly, never allow such atrocities to take place again.  During the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, Anne Frank began to keep a diary on June 14, 1942, two days after her 13th birthday and twenty-two days before going into hiding with her mother, father, sister, and three other people. The group went into hiding in the sealed-off upper rooms of the annex of her father's office building in Amsterdam. The sealed-off upper-rooms also contained a hidden door which the Franks would hide in during the days when Nazi soldiers were investigating the buildings for harbored Jews. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal in August 1944, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps.

        Adapted from “Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl”, edited by Otto Frank, this play has won the 1956 Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award, a Critics Circle Award, and virtually every other coveted prize of the theatre.  This show is not to be missed.  In the film world, this show would be rated PG-13.
