Department of Theatre and Dance Presents The Diary of Anne Frank

Concordia University’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents “The Diary of Anne Frank”, March 14-17 at Westlund Theatre. This highly acclaimed play tells the story of a young Jewish girl named Anne Frank forced to go into hiding with her family and friends at the peak of the Nazi occupation of Europe.

Adapted from the very diary Anne Frank kept, this play explores the intimate relationships between the people of the Secret Annex and their efforts to survive in the face of unimaginable dangers. Ever since its first debut in 1955, The Diary of Anne Frank has moved millions of people worldwide and the diary of this ordinary girl has become the most widely read non-fiction book in the world, after the Bible. (By Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. Directed by Alan Holasek)

The Diary of Anne Frank is showing at 7:30 p.m., March 14-16 and 2 p.m. on March 17 and is FREE and open to the public.
