Michaelmas Week 7
“Dear Diary, Since you and I will be great friends, I will start by telling you about myself…”
A dramatisation which successfully captures the spirit of a teenage girl pre-occupied with film stars and boys and the energy and enthusiasm for life so evident in the diary which immortalised Anne Frank.
Tense and poignant yet hopeful throughout, this account of the years Anne endured in hiding with her family and four others explores their day to day survival in a cramped and strained environment.
Despite cat allergies, cigarette cravings and rotting potatoes a tragically overwhelming sense of optimism prevails from a girl whose life was turned upside down yet still had the faith and maturity to believe “in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart".
Each show will be followed by a talk from a Holocaust survivor.
