Anne Frank is a Jewish girl who has to go into hiding during World War Two to avoid the Nazis. Together with seven others she hides in the secret annex on the Prinsengracht 263 in Amsterdam. After almost 2 years in hiding they are discovered and deported to concentration camps. Anne’s father, Otto Frank, is the only one of the eight people to survive. After her death Anne becomes world famous because of the diary she wrote while in hiding.
The play is really centred around the complexity of the word family and what it means to be a family. The Frank’s lengthened lives by accepting other people to come into hiding with them and they put all differences aside. This show is highly relevant to the events that go on in the world to this day and there’s an essence of reality that comes through when watching teens put on a play with such heart wrenching content.
