The diary of Anne Frank comes to life

THE story of Anne Franks will come to life when Atherton Performing Arts presents “The Diary of Anne Franks” later this month.

By Robyn Holmes

The Diary of Anne Frank (who died of typhus in a concentration camp) was first published in Dutch by her father Otto Frank in 1947 and translated into many languages. 

The book was realised in the play by screen writers Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett in 1955. 

“It’s a wonderful play,” says director Jacqui Stephens. 

“Just as relevant today as when it was first written. It’s all about people needing to get on with each other and has a strong message of reconciliation and hope.” 

Bookings for the play that will be staged at the Silo Road Theatre from Friday 26 November through to Sunday 5 December are available at Tableland Books.
