Ocean State Theatre presents the Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning play, The Diary of Anne Frank, a beautiful story from one of the darkest periods in history. Through the diary entries of 13-year-old Anne Frank, the play tells the story of a Jewish family forced into hiding in an effort to avoid Nazi persecution during World War II. Isolated from the outside world, her family and three others lived in constant fear of being discovered. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps. After the war, the pages of Anne’s diary were discovered on the floor of the annex where the family had been hiding. This moving, true story is a testament to the human spirit and classic theatre not to be missed.
The Diary of Anne Frank will be presented from March 26 – April 13, 2014.
