Ocean State Theatre
3/26-4/13/2014
Ocean State Theatre presents the Pulitzer Prize and Tony® Award-winning play, The Diary of Anne Frank, a beautiful story from one of the darkest periods in history. Through the diary entries of 13-year-old Anne Frank, the play tells the story of a Jewish family forced into hiding in an effort to avoid Nazi persecution during World War II. Isolated from the outside world, her family and three others lived in constant fear of being discovered. They remained hidden for two years and one month, until their betrayal, which resulted in their deportation to Nazi concentration camps. After the war, the pages of Anne's diary were discovered on the floor of the annex where the family had been hiding. This moving, true story is a testament to the human spirit and classic theatre not to be missed.

OLD LOVE
Granite Theatre
4/11-5/4/2014
"Old Love" by Norm Foster - From the author of THE LOVE LIST, the story spans three decades and half a dozen meetings between Bud, a salesman, and Molly, his boss' wife. One of them is smitten from the very first meeting - the other, let's just say - less so. The story is straightforward, easy and funny. Canada's pre-eminent comic playwright Norm Foster has written a clever and witty dialogue celebrating the pursuit of love, the kind of love that makes you breathe just a little bit faster. Charmingly written, Foster's use of one-liners serve the script well and has the audience smiling, chuckling and laughing throughout the entire play.
