The diary of anne frank
In this transcendentally 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. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

Wendy Kesselman's work has restored the terror." —The New York Daily News. "Wendy Kesselman's finely textured new DIARY tells a deeper story.

Synopsis: "I don't ask any man to understand me. How could he? I'm a woman." "The Women" is a satire of life behind the closed doors of women's culture. It exposes the indulgence of the wealthy who have been shielded from the worst effects of the Depression, but places them squarely in the midst of the class tension of the time. While working women in the play participate in skewering the Park Avenue ladies, all the ladies are keenly aware that regardless of class or race, one of the most lucrative and secure jobs available is that of "wife," and they do it with sparkling, witty, and clever dialogue.be rewarded.
