Anne Frank's story of hope in the face of evil is celebrated by a multi-ethnic cast of young people, each of whom have had their own experiences with ethnic cleansing, and survived their ordeals by embracing Anne's philosophy of "thinking themselves out" of their situations.

The on-stage characters who portray the figures in Anne's diary come from a variety of eras and conflicts. They include survivors of the Armenian genocide in 1915, the Bosnian civil war of the 1990s, and the ethnic cleansing in Rwanda. Together, they emphasize that Anne Frank's family was one of many families throughout history who suffered the ignorance and hatred of mobs, putting the Frank's World War II experience into an even larger historical context.

Anne Frank is also available as a "field trip show" in Chicago and surrounding suburbs - to make a booking for your group for one of those performances, just click here.
